This review will change your approach to localised ST depression on the ECG, which on its own does not accurately localise ischaemia, and may be the first sign of subtle occlusion
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?
Augustus Desiré Waller (1856 – 1922) was a British physiologist who recorded the first ever electrocardiogram (ECG).

Misplacement of V1 and V2: Don’t let this mistake mess up your ECG interpretation! Manifesting with P wave, Q wave, T wave changes and Brugada II pattern
Henry Cuthbert Bazett (1885 – 1950) was an English physiologist. Eponym: Bazett's formula to calculate QTc interval for varying heart rates

Walter Holbrook Gaskell (1847-1914) was a British physiologist central to our current understanding of cardiac physiology
