"Team EMS-12 Lead" (Christopher Watford, Tom Bouthillet and David Baumrind) at the EMS 10 Awards

It's been an amazing week at EMS Today 2012! As you probably already know (if you've been following our Facebook page) I won an EMS 10 Award on Wednesday night.

I was nominated by our good friend David Hiltz from the American Heart Association (a previous EMS 10 Award honoree and well known for his work with HeartSafe Communites) and co-nominated by Associate Editors Christopher Watford and David Baumrind.

This is a tremendous honor but I'm very congizant that I couldn't do it without such awesome friends and mentors! The EMS 12-Lead blog and podcast would not be what it is without Christopher and David.

"Podmedic" Jamie Davis, Tom Bouthillet and Ted Setla discuss the Code STEMI Web Series on the MedicCast

This week was also marked by the release of Episode 1 of the Code STEMI Web Series at First Responders Network! I've seen the first episode a couple of times but being there at the premier was really amazing!

Special thanks to Ted Setla and Chris Eldridge from First Responders Network and Erik Denny from Physio-Control (our indispensable partner on the road) for making this possible! I'm delighted to have been a part of it! 

Episode 1 was very well received! In fact, a couple of top-notch EMS systems are very interested in having us come out to feature their STEMI systems and the locations sound amazing! So keep your fingers crossed. We'd love to continue this series!

Premier of the Code STEMI Web Series at the Physio-Control Learning Center

Kelly and I are having a wonderful time. We're seeing lots of old friends and making some new ones, too! EMS 2.0 has been called an idea and it's been called a movement. More than anything else we've come to realize it's about friendship and it's about relationships.

It may have started online but it's accomplishing some amazing things in the real world!

All that wiggles isn’t Wellens’
@Gary, by all means, nitpick all you like. I agree with your assessment, and the post has been modified. Thank you for the feedback!

Not to nitpick but is this really a "slightly leftward axis"? I and AVF are both positive. I put it at about +20 degrees, not leftward.

87 YOM COMPLAINING OF CHEST DISCOMFORT AND DYSPNEA
CHF. 12-lead shows a sinus Tachycardia in the 120s with PACs, besides the anterior leads there's diffuse ST depression, the STE in the anterior leads can be explained by the LBBB, axis is good as well. I wish they posted the EtCO2 waveform so we could see but I'm assuming it's non-obstructive. The elevated EtCO2…

“Bad heartburn” – 82 y.o. female without chest pain.
Brooks, Firstly, thank you for the warm welcome to the club. Secondly, the Glasgow algorithm's only published sens/spec for AMI is 51.6%/97.6% respectively (Tuscon STEMI Database). I've not been able to find any other publications. The GE Marquette 12SL algorithm has been widely studied, but is much older, and ranges in sensitivity from 48% to…

57 Year Old Male–Chest Discomfort
Given what he was doing (paint fumes on ladder painting) I would first question if the pain is reproducable. Yes his ekg isn't normal but looks like old inferior MI. And he is hypertensive. 02 a must. Def. would give ASA. First would give morphine and see how his cp and bp are. If still…
