Nurse Practitioner ECG practice

  1. 0
    I thought it might be good practice for us to have an interesting clinical problem each week. Maybe even more often.

    Look at this ECG and decide what you think. Infero-lateral infarct, acute inferior infarct with right ventricular involvement or normal ECG.

    You can give your rationale if you so choose. If not, it will be given later.

    Good luck and have fun!!!!!!!!!

    This is not the easiest strip to evaluate, I know. Tricky. Do you think I would give you something easy?

    Ya'll keep on with the replies. I will let you know what the answer is and the rationale.

    Good work!!!!!!!!!! :Melody:

    Inferolateral with right ventricular involvement. I am hesitant to say that because there is no ST elevation in V2 or Lead 2 .....????

    The ST segments look kind of concave in their elevation and would make me curious about a pericarditis process....but that is probably reading way too much into the problem.

    wouldn't the st waves be more global if it was pericarditis meaning more apparent to most or all the leads...correct me if im wrong

    The ST segments are very interesting in this strip giving one reason to suspect pericarditis.
