Entry Img

This is the discussion for Comparing 12-Leads: Common Error or Common Disease? All of our readers were on the right track, and many were spot on!

58 year old female CC: Chest pain
I would be inclined to ignore QTC as rate is above 100 and unreliable to interpret less than 50 or more than 80. ST segments are interesting as is the history. PE was my first impression AnterioSeptal MI second impression but I'm inclined to consider LV Aneurysm as third Impression as no reciprocal changes?
