Looks like evolving lateral wall Stemi involvement of LCX Patient with diabetes and hypertension already has CAD Since chest pain duration is not mentioned.. Patient needs to have loadinv dose ecosprin 325,clopitab300,atorvas 80,pantocid 40mg With clexane 0.6mg stat n then bd Send all cardiac markers

Final Diagnosis is Anterolateral Myocardial Infarction. Thank you so much everyone for making the Diagnosis and line of treatment.

St elevation in V3,4,5, STEMI - Anterolateral mi and t wave inversion in lead lll. Urgent Cardiologist ref for PTCA if possible. Maintain ABCDE and Vitals. ABG with electrolytes, glucose, lactate,hb. Maintain good Oxygenation and urine. Aspirin, clopidograle, atorva, LMWH, Thromolysis if awaiting coronarycath. Need further evaluation Rx.

Treat as acs. Send abg haemogram ck mb trop t. Rfts load with ecosprin clopitab atrvostation. Give inj. Lasix 40 mg stat. Do usg Take openion cardiologest & nephrologest to rule out arf or crf. 2 D echo also helpful. After stable pt. Do cag.

Anteriolateral MI Thrombolyse Urgent cardiology opinion

Lateral wall mi +changes in inf wall to b observed Any way thrombombolise him Follow ur routine protocol Fr further management and intervention

Thank you so much Dr Sanjay Tarlekar.

ECG is low voltage. HR >100. ST ELEVATED IN inferior lead. And also.ST elevated v4 -V6. QRS Axis is on 60 degrees. Infero- Lat. hyperacute MI. Possibility doublevessels disease i:e. RCA & Left cercumplex block. Adv. Do 2D.Echo. TFT Cardiac markers. And send Pt. For CAG &PTCA

Acute Anterolateral infarction likely inferior wall infarction too. Treat as per ACS.

Thank you Dr Deepak

Sinus tachycardia,St elevation in v3 to v6.
