I’m busy updating my ECG collection so I’m using some of the older ECG’s I’ve collected. Unfortunately many of these, including this week’s ECG, don’t have any associated clinical information. I will try and track down some information on this case and will update the post if I find any.
Even without any clinical information it’s still a nice ECG 🙂

I don’t have any clinical information on this case so we’ll assume for the question stem it is from a 53 yr old obese male who presents to your Emergency Dept with chest pain and palpitations.
BP 100/62 RR 22 Sats 98% 10L/min GCS 15
a) Describe and interpret
b) Outline your management plan
For those of you working towards the FACEM Part 2 exam remember to read the question, there is no unnecessary information in the stem.
Things to watch for are:
- Department type – regional, rural, tertiary
- Patient factors – obesity, pregnant
Address all these factors when planning your answer e.g. do you need to postpone a operation ? will you need to transfer a patient ? is this a complex or difficult situation ?
