My department is starting a 12-lead ECG “case of the month” as part of our continuing education. Each month, I will select an ECG that was transmitted from the field and resulted in a cath lab activation.
Whenever possible, I will include the “before” and “after” angiograms so that the paramedics receive feedback about the culprit artery. A “clinical pearl” will also be included whenever it seems appropriate.
Here are the first two case studies. Followers of this blog will recognize the ECGs and angiograms. Going forward, I will document the E2B and D2B times.
Your feedback is welcome.
