24 minute lecture: The False STEMI Non-STEMI Dichotomy from SMACC-Chicago: now online again

This is a lecture I gave it at Social Media and Critical Care Conference in Chicago (SMACC-Chicago) in June 2015.

It's title for the conference was "Myocardial Infarctions you must not miss!"

This Lecture is more aptly entitled: The False STEMI Non-STEMI Dichotomy.

The lecture had been offline for a while, but is back up!!

There is a lot of new data that further supports the ideas in this lecture, which is now almost 3 years old, but it is still very worth watching.

Sorry for the body movement: I just can't stand still!

  1. Hi Dr Smith, in the EKG on screen at 3:58 those are de winters t waves, right?

  2. Hey Dr. Smith, I'm trying give a lecture that includes a talk on the limited data to support strict adherence to the "STEMI criteria" and was wondering what your source was for your "ST elevation 'criterion' in use today" slide at 11:00? Thank you.
