Abstract

The admission ECG is very useful in risk stratifying patients with non-Q wave MI. The new criteria of not only > or = 1-mm ST segment deviation but also > or = 0.5-mm ST segment deviation or LBBB identify high risk patients, whereas T wave inversion does not add to the clinical history in predicting outcome.
