Abstract

The 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) is the one of the most well-established diagnostic tools in cardiology. It was brought into widespread clinical use by Willem Einthoven in the early 1900s and today, despite dramatic advances in the detection of acute coronary syndrome (ACS), the ECG remains invaluable. During ACS, evidence of myocardial ischemia can be identified by characteristic changes in the T wave and ST segment, as well as by the appearance of Q waves. Frequently, these changes permit localization and quantification of myocardial injury, but their interpretation and subsequent therapeutic interventions may be confounded by normal variants. Thus, it is critical to establish and maintain proficiency in proper ECG interpretation.
