With worked examples in the next three posts, we look at ways to recognise early ECG features of OMI before waiting for a "STEMI" to evolve
A 24-year-old female presents following a syncopal episode. This case incorporates basic bedside echo into our ED work-up of syncope.
A 78-year-old man presents following a self-resolved episode of right axillary pain. Add this characteristic ECG pattern to your list of spot diagnoses.
With a great case example, we discuss diagnosing OMI in the presence of intraventricular conduction delay and/or prior anterior myocardial infarction
This characteristic ECG pattern should be in every critical care practitioner's knowledge base as a STEMI-equivalent, regardless of the magnitude of ST-segment changes seen
Can you predict this patient's potassium? Patients with this syndrome may not exhibit the typical ECG features of hyperkalaemia beyond bradycardia
A 34-year-old man presents with palpitations and a regular broad complex tachycardia. Would you give adenosine?
This ECG is from a 35 yr old male Type 1 diabetic. He presents feeling generally unwell with abdominal pain and dyspnea. Interpret the ECG
ECG of a 14yr old female who presents following an episode of palpitations and associated dizziness. Interpret her ECG using the Arruda algorithm
These ECGs were taken from a 40 yr old male who presented with a 60 minute history of central chest pain. Describe and interpret his ECG
ECG of a 71 y/o male who presented with several episodes of ischaemic sounding chest pain on a background of known ischaemic cardiac disease.
20 yr old female who presented to the Emergency Department following an episode of chest pain. At review she was pain free and all vital signs were normal. Her serial ECG's are below, there is ~30 mins between each ECG.
