in non ST elevation MI, we find ST elevation or depression, flat or inverted T.

I'm wondering how come ST elevation?!





  #2

we cant find ST elevation for sure...other findings are possible.

however there is one situation u gotta be careful of..a posterior wall MI...in ST depression wud be observed in th eanterior leads.



  #3

Non ST elevation:No ST elevation however the enzymes are positive and it represents subendocardial infarct
Printzmetals Angina:transient ST elevation with no enzymes
Acute MI:ST elevation+Enzymes
Unstable angina:ST depression or T wave inversions during ischemia(same as Non ST)
Hope that helps!Correct me if i am wrong


  #4

but it's written that in NSEMI there will be nosspecific changes as isolated ST elevation, depression, flat or inverted T wave. I guess the point should be isolated. not agreeable with any kind of MI. What do you think?


  #5

good point actually.

for thrombolytics the indications include

st elevation in 2 or more contiguous leads

( and LBBB not known to be old )
