A 58-year-old female smoker with dyslipidemia presented to the emergency room with a 1-hour history of typical chest pain and hypotension (systolic blood pressure, 80mmHg). An electrocardiogram (ECG) was recorded (Figure 1). This showed simultaneous ST elevation in the inferior leads and in leads V1-V3. An ECG in the right leads was also recorded (Figure 2). This showed an ST elevation pattern in IIIII, along with diffuse ST depression in AVL > I, with ST elevation greater than 1mm in leads V3 and V4.
