Example text

Hence, AMI is now classified as STEMI or NSTEMI. A normal Q wave representing the rapid depolarization of the thin septal wall between the two ventricles may be found in most leads (Box 1). This initial negative deflection of the QRS complex is of short duration and of low amplitude. Pathologic Q waves, often a consequence of MI, are generally wider and deeper than normal Q waves. Following MI with significant Box 1. 04 sec. A Q wave of depth >25% of R wave height is often quoted as diagnostic, but width is more important than depth  Leads III, aVR, V1: normal subjects may have nonpathologic wide and deep Q waves Adapted with permission from Smith SW, Zvosec DL, Sharkey SW, Henry TD.

Such extensive and profound STE is especially true in the presence of RV hypertrophy [34,159]. When RCA occlusion is suspected, record a right-sided ECG in which lead V1 becomes lead V2R, lead V2 becomes lead V1R, and leads V3R– Fig. 26. STEMI in the presence of LBBB. The previous ECG (not shown) had LBBB with typical discordant ST segments and T waves. There is now concordant STE and upright T waves in leads I, aVL, V5, and V6. There is concordant reciprocal STD in the inferior leads II, III, and aVF.

RBBB with AMI from proximal LAD occlusion. In the presence of RBBB, STE (leads V2–V6, I, and aVL) and reciprocal STD (leads II, III, and aVF) are seen clearly as long as the end of the QRS complex is properly located. Note that in lead V1, although the T wave is appropriately discordant for RBBB, the ST segment is inappropriately normal; it would be expected to be depressed in nonischemic RBBB. 78 SMITH & WHITWAM Box 2. Sgarbossa criteria for diagnosis of STEMI in the presence of LBBB Concordant ST segment elevation ‚1 mm in one or more leads, which means ST segment elevation in leads in which the QRS complex is predominantly positive (V5, V6, I, aVL, or II) Concordant ST segment depression ‚1 mm in one or more leads (ie, ST segment depression in leads in which QRS complex is predominantly negative [V1, V2, V3]); this is 90% specific for AMI caused by posterior injury Discordant ST segment elevation ‚5 mm that is excessive (out of proportion) to the depth of the preceding S wave seems to be approximately 90% specific for AMI is often associated with conduction defects at the AV node, including complete heart block.
