The following ECG was acquired with V4 moved to the of V4R, and V5 & V6 moved to the position of V8 & V9, respectively.
Slower reperfusion arrhythmias such as sinus bradycardia and ventricular escape rhythms are thought to be resultant of increased vagal tone in the recently ischemic myocardial tissue; a phenomenon known as the Bezold-Jarisch Reflex, which is most commonly seen in inferior or posterior MI’s.A brief medical history is obtained while a set of vitals and applying the ECG electrodes.
