EKG Nuggets: Spice Up Your Learning!

Welcome to our EKG Nuggets series where we spice up your learning with some electrifying insights presented by a Cardiologist!

Since Nashville holds the crown for the world's hot chicken capital, we're borrowing its flavor scale to rate the appropriateness/difficulty of these nuggets for different audiences:

  • Mild (for the med students and interns)
  • Medium (senior residents, come on down!)
  • Spicy (calling all cardiology fellows and junior cardiologists!)
  • Extra Spicy (senior cardiologists and rhythm specialists, let's turn up the heat!)

In each episode, get ready for a short video (less than 10 minutes) where we'll doodle and scribble directly on the EKG.

Hope you're ready for this spicy learning journey! 🌶️🔥

Thanks @Khaled Sleik for creating this group. Nice idea!

Is this to post EKGs for people to get an opinion about them (i.e., help reading them) or to post EKGs where we know the answer mainly for educational purpose or both?

Also, I would suggest we tag all EKGs with the EKG channgel ( ) so, these EKGs will show up there as well.

I want to share this "routine" case we see everyday, but it has a little twist that we don't see very often. No tricks here!!

This is a 41-y-o Hispanic male, presented with lingering CP x 12 hrs. Exam negative.

Presenting EKG below:

Troponins below:

Did well overnight. No recurrent CP.

What's next: Stress or Cath?
