61 year old male patient with peripheral vascular disease monitored during infarctectomy. Patient has a possible inferior myocardial infarction.
Rhythm analysis indicates sinus tachycardia with ST segment elevation.
This encounter shows ST segment elevation, an often significant EKG finding. ST elevation can be identified by looking at the J point, which should be elevated at least 0.1mV above the isoelectric line. ST elevation is commonly associated with STEMI (ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction), but can also indicate many other disorders, such as pericarditis, left ventricular aneurysm, and hypothermia.
