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

I'm wondering how come ST elevation?!


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

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


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


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?


good point actually.

for thrombolytics the indications include

st elevation in 2 or more contiguous leads

( and LBBB not known to be old )
