I am currently doing some research on myocardial infarctions and I have some questions:

  1. What are the early patterns of myocardial infarction on an ECG? For example, anterior MI and Inferior MI as I know it's ST elevation in V4 for Anterior MI and lead II in inferior MI.

  2. Can we use single lead ECG monitor placed for example on Lead v4 to detect the early patterns?

  3. Does at-home monitoring help to diagnose an MI earlier and accurately?

  4. What's the approximate period between the early patterns and symptoms like chest pain?

  5. Can a person with an MI live for years?

  6. Is an MI related to both hypertension and hypotension?

Hope to find answers.

    This is six questions, not one. A good answer would fill a textbook. – Carey Gregory Oct 10 at 15:24

    @user31562 Carey Gregory's answer is the shortest you are going to get. – Bryan Krause Oct 10 at 15:33
  • Most of your questions don't have short answers because there's a lot of information that would have to be explained just to answer them. And this site is designed for one q at a time. – DoctorWhom Oct 11 at 3:16
