Electrocardiographic Hallmarks of STEMI

Segment Types Ami

Figure 9.2 illustrates the following three ECG hallmarks of a classic STEMI These three changes in the ECG typically evolve over a period of minutes to hours, with ST elevation usually appearing first, followed variably by T wave inversion and Q wave formation. Subsequently, the changes may show slow resolution, usually over a period ranging from days to months. Q waves, however, may persist indefinitely, producing ECG evidence of a scar. Figure 9.2.
