Dr. Smith's ECG Blog

Interpretation : diagnostic of acute anterior OMI with STE less than STEMI criteria in V1-V4, hyperacute T waves in V2-V4, and suspiciously flat isoelectric ST segments in III and aVF suspicious for reciprocal findings. Now it even meets STEMI criteria, and HATWs continue to inflate. So the cath lab was not activated. Ongoing OMI.
