Which lead on a 12 lead ecg is the best to identify a MI that just happened?
- 0Feb 11, '13 by enesbergYa I know this question is super specific, but my teacher told us it might be on the test and I've searched the internet and my textbooks with no luck.....
Or could I have heard him wrong??

For example, inferior/diaphragmatic ischemia is seen best in II, III, and aVF. I will let you go look up what combination of leads show lateral or anterior problems. These are what your faculty wants you to know.
