Transcript of ST Segment Monitoring in the ED

Why Should We Be ST Segment Monitoring?
AHA Standard Guideline
Class I Recommendation

We Are Equipped
To Do So
Setting up Phillips Monitor for EASI
EASI Placement
- (Brown)
xtreme bottom of sternum
- (Red) Left mid
xillary same transverse as E
- (Black)
ternal Manubrium

- (White) R
ght mid axillary, same line as E
lead is a

The old saying still applies but angled - "Smoke over fire and clouds over earth" Then just know that Brown is the bottom of the sternum
We need to monitor this effectively to be better at detecting silent ischemia
ST Segment monitoring with Philips
EASI lead placement
Filling the Knowledge Gap
ST Segment Monitoring on Philips MP50
Leads to Monitor
ACS Rule Out - Minimum of V3 and Lead III
12 Lead contiguous
Priorities of Analysis
Assess ST Elevation
Assess for for T wave inversion (NSTEMI or unstable angina)
Assess for ST depression
Class III
Ventricularly Paced
Arrhythmias that obscure ST
Body Position
Careful Prep
Lead Placement
Tailor Alarms
Understand our goals
Class I AHA Recommendation
Silent Ischemia
EASI Lead Placement
ST Segment changes
Save a life!
