The admission ECG in patients who have STEMI is valuable for selecting patients who are candidates for early reperfusion treatment and also for providing information regarding the location and extent of acute myocardial injury. By reflecting the pathophysiology of the myocardium during acute ischemia, the ECG conveys information not provided by coronary angiography and provides important information to guide clinical decision making.
