  1. Look for clinical syndromes caused by acute myocardial ischemia: -----
    • unstable angina
    • NSTEMI
    • STEMI
  2. Classic anginal symptoms include substernal chest pain, shortness of breath, and diaphoresis.

    Anginal equivalents are most commonly found in patients with diabetes and in women and include -----
    • exertional dyspnea,
    • fatigue,
    • nausea, and
    • vomiting.
  3. Signs of cardiac ischemia include  -----
    new MR and S3 and S4 gallops.
  4. The 12-lead ECG and serum biomarkers distinguish three types of ACS:

    Unstable angina:  ----
    • Normal cardiac biomarkers
    • (troponin and CK-MB) without characteristic ECG changes (nonspecific ECG changes or normal)
  5. The 12-lead ECG and serum biomarkers distinguish three types of ACS:

    NSTEMI: -----
    Positive biomarkers without ST elevations or ST-elevation equivalents

    (although ST depression and nonspecific changes can be seen)
  6. The 12-lead ECG and serum biomarkers distinguish three types of ACS:

    STEMI:  ---
    Positive biomarkers and ST-segment elevation in two or more contiguous leads;

    ST-elevation equivalents include a new LBBB or posterior MI (tall R waves and ST depressions in V1-V3)
  7. The 12-lead ECG and serum biomarkers distinguish three types of ACS:

    STEMI: Positive biomarkers and ST-segment elevation in two or more contiguous leads;

    ST-elevation equivalents include a  -----
    • - new LBBB or
    • - posterior MI (tall R waves and ST depressions in V1-V3)
  8. The 12-lead ECG and serum biomarkers distinguish three types of ACS:

    STEMI: Positive biomarkers and ST-segment elevation in two or more contiguous leads;

    ST-elevation equivalents include a new LBBB or posterior MI (-------)
    (tall R waves and ST depressions in V1-V3)
  9. Echocardiogram may show regional wall motion abnormalities in ACS. This may be especially useful in patients with -------.
    LBBB.
  10. ECG Localization of Acute MI

    Anatomic Location: Inferior
    ST-Segment Change: Elevation
    Indicative ECG Leads:
    II, III, aVF
  11. ECG Localization of Acute MI

    Anatomic Location: Inferior ST-Segment Change: Elevation
    Indicative ECG Leads: II, III, aVF
    ECG Localization of Acute MIAnatomic Location: Inferior ST-Segment Change: Elevation Indicative ECG Leads: II, III, aVF
