P - A - I - L - S

:: RECIPROCAL CHANGES IN ECG :: Don't forget "PAILS". This mnemonic identifies that ST segment elevation in a group of leads most commonly creates reciprocal changes in the leads that are represented by the next letter of the mnemonic (Exception : For 'L' consider both the preceding and the next letter). Posterior – anterior reciprocal changes Anterior – inferior reciprocal changes Inferior – lateral reciprocal changes Lateral <-> inferior or septal reciprocal changes Septal – posterior reciprocal changes
