ECG Interpretation: Myocardial ischaemia and infarction

Part two of a 5 part lecture series on ECG/EKG Interpretation – Myocardial ischemia and infarction – with Dr Theo Sklavos and cardiologist A/Prof William Wang. This lecture series is aimed primarily at medical/nursing/paramedicine students and junior trainees, but will hopefully be useful as a refresher course for the more experienced.
