ECG Strip 02


ECG Strip 02 - anterior STEMI

Approximately sixty years old patient with a positive family history of infarction has been transported to the outpatient department. He is unable to describe his troubles but in the end he admits a burning chest pain lasting for about an hour. At the moment, the pain is almost over. The ECG shows elevation of ST segments in V2-V5 and when we look closer, then even in I and aVL. The probably diagnosis is the anterior wall infarction. The patient has been transported to therapeutic coronary angiography; acute closure of RIA has been confirmed and followed by successful revascularization.
