New paper by Smith: New Insights Into Use of the 12-Lead ECG for Diagnosing Acute MI in the Emergency Department


We just published this paper in the Canadian Journal of Cardiology.  The February 2018 issue is on "Advances and Controversies in Cardiac Emergency Care:"

New Insights Into the Use of the 12-Lead Electrocardiogram for Diagnosing Acute Myocardial Infarction in the Emergency Department


It is a very comprehensive update, concentrating on the ECG diagnosis of acute coronary occlusion and its look-alikes.

Unfortunately, it will be difficult for many to get full text.

  2. steve...
    look at fig 2, "panel 2b".. should that second 2b mean 2c?(?mislabeled?). (perhaps its just in this draft that i got from the link right above)
    this article is excellent, of course, steve,( et.al.)
    much i have read /seen in your prior blogs, beautifully and concisely shown here.
    thank you all.
    now to incorporate it all, and convince the accepting physicians elsewhere (we do not have emergent PCI ).

    1. Thanks, Tom. Got your email and I'll look at it. No doubt some typos there, but not much to do about it now.
      :(
