8 deadly ECG patterns NOT to miss -- Part 2, the occlusion version. These patients require immediate cardiology referral for emergent reperfusion therapy.
There are five features on this "normal" ECG that suggest impending inferior STEMI - can you spot them?
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
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
The OMI/NOMI paradigm: Better recognising patients with acute ischaemia that will respond to Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI)
