Therefore, the axis is in the normal quadrant. For that reason, we look at leads III and aVL for an isoelectric lead. It appears that III is isoelectric, so the axis is perpendicular to lead III in the normal quadrant, or +30°. Next, consider the record in Fig. 7. In examining leads I and aVF, one finds that lead aVF is isoelectric, so the axis does not fall within a quadrant, but rather is on the horizontal. Because lead I is positive, the axis must be 0° (rather than 180°, which would require lead I to be negative).

13. 14. −50° 3 Myocardial Infarction and Ischemia Myocardial infarction occurs when oxygen delivery to the myocardium is inadequate for metabolic requirements and remains inadequate to the point of cellular death. This is in contrast to myocardial ischemia, wherein there is also inadequate oxygen delivery to the myocardium, but it is only temporary and is not prolonged or severe enough to lead to cell death. There is clearly a spectrum of response to inadequate oxygen delivery to the myocardium, ranging from mild ischemia through moderate and finally severe ischemia, and, if not reversible, ultimately to myocardial infarction (Fig.

Reciprocal changes are primarily observed in the limb leads and less often in the precordial leads and are seen more often in inferior than anterior infarctions [13, 14]. The degree of ST depression as a reciprocal change is proportional to the magnitude of ST elevation seen as an acute change in STEMIs [15]. Reciprocal changes are seen in approximately 50% of STEMIs, and their presence is associated with a more extensive infarction than when they are absent [16]. Accordingly, the prognosis for patients who have transmural infarction associated with reciprocal change is worse than that for patients whose infarctions are not associated with reciprocal change.
