  Question Top

A 63-year-old male patient presents to a rural British Columbia emergency room after developing chest pain, epigastric discomfort, nausea and sweating, while riding his all-terrain-vehicle. He has an ashen appearance and looks acutely ill. He has a number of positive risk factors for cardiovascular disease, including a previous stroke, treated hypertension, treated hylerlipidaemia and a pack-a-day smoking history of almost 50 years. Initial pulse rate of 68/min and blood pressure of 166/91 mm Hg are recorded. The chest is clear; there is no evidence of peripheral oedema or distended neck veins. A 12-lead electrocardiogram is immediately performed [Figure 1]. It shows an inferior ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). What else does it suggest, what further test is required to confirm this and what are the implications for the management?
