  • Horizontal STD in leads V 1 through V 3, occurring in a patient with the potential for acute ischemic heart disease, should lead one to consider the diagnosis of acute PMI and employ additional investigations such as posterior thorax ECG leads.[ahcmedia.com]
  • Left Bundle Branch Block(LBBB) : LBBB does signify underlying heart disease but may be new or a chronic change.[cdemcurriculum.com]
Heart Block
  • Complications may include a sudden onset of distal heart block (Mobitz type II second degree), complete heart block, or new onset bundle branch block, hypertension, and signs of left ventricular dysfunction such as congestive heart failure, pulmonary[cathlabdigest.com]
  • Heart Block and Bradycardia: In addition to the ST elevations on EKG one should also look for second or third degree heart block or bradycardia.[cdemcurriculum.com]

T Wave Inversion
  • These feature are suggestive of posterior wall infarction, being the inverse of Q wave, ST elevation and T wave inversion which would have been recorded in a posterior lead.[cardiophile.org]
  • In 8 of these 22 patients, the infarct was silent in the sense that no ST segment elevation or Q waves were seen, although ST depressions or T wave inversions, or both, in all but one patient were compatible with subendocardial infarction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Within a few hours, you can begin to see negative T waves or T wave inversion as the MI evolves. The T wave inversion can persist for months after the MI.[dummies.com]
