ECG Infarction ECG Infarction Presentation Transcript

  • ECG Rhythm Interpretation Module V Acute Myocardial Infarction
  • Course Objectives
    • To recognize the normal rhythm of the heart - “Normal Sinus Rhythm.”
    • To recognize the 13 most common heart arrhythmias.
    • To recognize an acute myocardial infarction on a 12-lead ECG.
  • Learning Modules
    • ECG Basics
    • How to Analyze a Rhythm
    • Normal Sinus Rhythm
    • Heart Arrhythmias
    • Diagnosing a Myocardial Infarction
    • Advanced 12-Lead Interpretation
  • Diagnosing a MI
    • To diagnose a myocardial infarction you need to go beyond looking at a rhythm strip and obtain a 12-Lead ECG.
    Rhythm Strip 12-Lead ECG
  • The 12-Lead ECG
    • The 12-Lead ECG sees the heart from 12 different views.
    • Therefore, the 12-Lead ECG helps you see what is happening in different portions of the heart.
    • The rhythm strip is only 1 of these 12 views.
  • The 12-Leads
    • The 12-leads include:
      • 3 Limb leads (I, II, III)
      • 3 Augmented leads (aVR, aVL, aVF)
      • 6 Precordial leads (V 1 - V 6 )
  • Views of the Heart
    • Some leads get a good view of the:
    Anterior portion of the heart Lateral portion of the heart Inferior portion of the heart
  • ST Elevation
    • One way to diagnose an acute MI is to look for elevation of the ST segment.
  • ST Elevation (cont)
    • Elevation of the ST segment (greater than 1 small box) in 2 leads is consistent with a myocardial infarction.
  • Anterior View of the Heart
    • The anterior portion of the heart is best viewed using leads V 1 - V 4 .
  • Anterior Myocardial Infarction
    • If you see changes in leads V 1 - V 4 that are consistent with a myocardial infarction, you can conclude that it is an anterior wall myocardial infarction.
  • Putting it all Together
    • Do you think this person is having a myocardial infarction. If so, where?
  • Interpretation
    • Yes , this person is having an acute anterior wall myocardial infarction.
  • Other MI Locations
    • Now that you know where to look for an anterior wall myocardial infarction let’s look at how you would determine if the MI involves the lateral wall or the inferior wall of the heart.
  • Other MI Locations
    • First, take a look again at this picture of the heart.
    Anterior portion of the heart Lateral portion of the heart Inferior portion of the heart
  • Other MI Locations
    • Second, remember that the 12-leads of the ECG look at different portions of the heart. The limb and augmented leads “see” electrical activity moving inferiorly (II, III and aVF), to the left (I, aVL) and to the right (aVR). Whereas, the precordial leads “see” electrical activity in the posterior to anterior direction.
    Limb Leads Augmented Leads Precordial Leads
  • Other MI Locations
    • Now, using these 3 diagrams let’s figure where to look for a lateral wall and inferior wall MI.
    Limb Leads Augmented Leads Precordial Leads
  • Anterior MI
    • Remember the anterior portion of the heart is best viewed using leads V 1 - V 4 .
    Limb Leads Augmented Leads Precordial Leads
  • Lateral MI
    • So what leads do you think the lateral portion of the heart is best viewed?
    Limb Leads Augmented Leads Precordial Leads Leads I, aVL, and V 5 - V 6
  • Inferior MI
    • Now how about the inferior portion of the heart?
    Limb Leads Augmented Leads Precordial Leads Leads II, III and aVF
  • Putting it all Together
    • Now, where do you think this person is having a myocardial infarction?
  • Inferior Wall MI
    • This is an inferior MI. Note the ST elevation in leads II, III and aVF.
  • Putting it all Together
    • How about now?
  • Anterolateral MI
    • This person’s MI involves both the anterior wall (V 2 -V 4 ) and the lateral wall (V 5 -V 6 , I, and aVL)!
