I posted this question in this category because most of you most likely deal with ekgs. I took an EKG of a patient, doctor saw it and called for code STEMI. Before that, when I was taking the ekg, machine suggested limb leads reversal so I double checked but all leads were placed in the right places. So my question is does anyone of you experience ekg machine saying leads are reversed but actually they are not?
I am an ER tech in training. I am a bit nervous right now because the patient was sent to cath lab after the ekg. What if the leads were really placed wrong but then again, I saw what I saw and all leads were on right places.
