During ST-segment elevation AMI (STEMI), the electrocardiogram (ECG) typically follows a progression of abnormality, beginning with hyperacute T waves and culminating with ST-segment elevation; pathologic Q waves can appear early and/or late in the process. Other findings include T-wave inversion and ST-segment depression which can occur before, during, or after the STEMI event. The evolution of ECG… CONTINUE READING
