One hour lecture on Subtle ECG findings of Acute LAD Occlusion (plus some inferior/lateral/posterior)

This is my most popular lecture, which Scott Joing of www.hqmeded.com just recorded for me in his amazing video recording studio.

When I give this lecture real-time, I usually do it in a workshop and have more time - enough time to stop and let people get a good look at the ECG and try to find the critical elements for themselves before going on to explain them.  That makes for a significantly longer lecture.

But if you want to have time to scrutinize any ECG, just pause the video to look at the ECG for a while before you play my explanation.

  1. - the original paper of Spanish cohort study of 272 pts of inferior STEMI, STD in aVL of 46 pts/51 subtle changes?
    - amazing lecture! Thank you.

    1. Here is the Marti paper: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0002870314005481
      For the data I presented, we contacted him and he went through his cases, so you won't find it in the paper.

  3. What do you mean by U-wave in benign early repolarization ? min 07:45 to 07:50 ? is it related to hypokalemia ?

    1. Mostafa,
      No, they do not represent hypoK. Early repol often has normal U-waves in V2 and V3. They seem to me to be useful in identifying it as early repol, though I have not studied it.

  5. Congratulations on this awesome lecture !
    Could you comment on why there is no ST depression in that ECG with inferoposterior MI at 59:00 ?
    Thanks again.
