mbourne  @hayayah, Although this is a bit outside of the realm of Step 1, I want to clarify a point. Early MI does not typically lead to ST-depression. Early MI will typically present with hyperacute T-waves with straightening of the ST segment, and then evolve towards more familiar "STEMI" morphology. Great image representation of MI EKG changes: ST depression from subendocardial ischemia can occur with supply/demand mismatch --> ISCHEMIA, but not Myocardial INFARCTION. +2
