SUBTLE ST CHANGES This ECG was obtained from an 87-year-old man who was experiencing chest pain. Due to the subtle ST elevation in Leads II, III, aVF, V5, and V6, (inferior- lateral walls) the ECG was transmitted to the hospital by the EMS crew, and the cath lab was activated. The patient denied previous cardiac history.
Inferior-posterior wall M.I.
This ECG is a good example of an inferior wall M.I. that was confirmed and treated in the cath lab.
The ST segments are elevated in Leads II, III, and aVF, but the amount of elevation may look subtle to some. When the amount of elevation seems small, what other signs can help us recognize acute ST-elevation M.I.?
