What it looks like: inferior STEMI

Entry Img

No mysteries here today – this is an inferior STEMI! But I thought that prehospital provider might like to see what happens “on the inside” during an MI. The Case: A 60-something female had a few days of feeling not quite right, so she did some Googling, and she began to worry about a heart […]

Conclusion to Snapshot Case: 85yo M – Chest Pain

Entry Img

This is the conclusion to the Snapshot Case from a couple of days ago. If you haven’t already done so, I suggest reviewing the very brief initial case description. Here again is the EKG from Tuesday’s case. This tracing is nearly pathognomonic for true occlusion of the left main coronary artery (LMCA), resulting in a […]

Here’s a blog post so promotional that it may crash Facebook’s throttling algorithm! In case you weren’t aware, the EMS Today conference is back in Baltimore and is scheduled to take place  February 25-28, 2015. In my last blog post I wrote about some of the reasons I love Baltimore and why I believe it’s the […]

Snapshot Case: 85yo M – Chest Pain

Entry Img

Snapshot cases are EKG’s where we do not have good patient follow-up—or sometimes even clinical information—but still feel there are worthwhile learning points to convey. This is an old case we’ve actually featured on the blog before, but today we’re going to do so with a different focus. This ECG is from an 85-year-old male, […]

Entry Img

Those of you who miss the Pratt Street Ale House, Slider’s Bar and Grill, Pickles Pub, “Natty Boh”, Maryland crabcakes, the Inner Harbor, and Fell’s Point will be glad to know that EMS Today is back in Baltimore Feb 25-28, 2015! I like the Smithsonian as much as the next guy (all right, probably more […]

Anterior T wave inversions and PE.

Entry Img

Last week, I described the case of a middle-aged male with a vague history of heart failure who had been having progressive shortness of breath for 4-5 days. On the day he called 911, he had been walking a short distance when he syncoped. EMS obtained an ECG: Compared with the prior ECG, the anterior […]

EMS is called to a local nursing home for a 100 year old female patient who had been complaining of rib pain and intermittent spasms for 3 days. Vital signs were assessed. RR: […]

Not just S1Q3T3: Look at the other 10 leads!

Entry Img

It was a slow morning in the ED, so I was able to catch the medic as she came in with the patient. “Hey Leigh, what do you have for us? Got an interesting ECG?” “Well, maybe,” she replied as she wheeled by with a comfortable looking middle-aged male, “here, take a look at it […]

The role of 12 lead ECG in Pediatric Pulmonary Hypertension
Thanks for writing Tyler. They are the same thing. Strain pattern is just the result of increased pressures against the ventricles which alters the way repolarization occurs from epicardium to endocardium. Similar to stepping on a puddle of water. Your show spreads the water away from the area of pressure. The ST segment is slightly…

Can you explain how these ST segment and T wave changes can be differentiated from right strain pattern?
