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?
Augustus Desiré Waller (1856 – 1922) was a British physiologist who recorded the first ever electrocardiogram (ECG).
Fridericia Formula for calculating the QT interval on an (ECG) according to heart rate, described in 1920. Louis Sigurd Fridericia (1881-1947)
Atrioventricular Nodal Reentrant Tachycardia (AVNRT) is a type of SVT and is the commonest cause of palpitations in patients with hearts exhibiting no structurally abnormality.
Henry Cuthbert Bazett (1885 – 1950) was an English physiologist. Eponym: Bazett's formula to calculate QTc interval for varying heart rates
