Paucis Verbis: AMI and ECG Geography

Paucis Verbis: AMI and ECG Geography

Sometimes a picture is worth MORE than a 1000 words. Such is the case of the above illustration that I saw on the Life In The Fast Lane blog. When I first saw it, I knew that I immediately had to find out who made the graphic. It turns out it is the multitalented Dr. Tor Ercleve, who is an emergency physician at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital and an established medical illustrator.

ECG anatomy illustration AMI

This graphic demonstrates the EKG findings for the various types of acute MI’s as broken down by coronary vascular anatomy (right coronary artery, left circumflex artery, left anterior descending artery). This detailed illustration won’t be readable in print form but is great in digital format on your mobile device.

Thanks, Tor!
