    Transcript
    Let us continue our discussion of ischemic heart disease and now we'll take a look at acute coronary syndrome. What does that mean to you? It means that we are one step closer to having a myocardial infarction, but not completely. So acute coronary syndrome, we understand that our patient has pain and may require rest and before we get into all of those, just make sure that we understand some simple basic anatomy because as we get to the tail end of our lecture series I will have you take a look at EKGs. This is that you know clearly the difference between what is known as STEMI an ST elevation myocardial infarction versus a non-STEMI. Before we get to any of that, there we are going to build a pathology and our understanding so that we would be able to clearly see this. First, we have the aorta, but then we have the left coronary artery. After left coronary artery that which is moving down between the ventricle. It would be your left anterior descending as you should know from anatomy. That left anterior descending if it underwent major mass of atherosclerosis and had an area in which there was myocardial infarction. You have any ideas to what leads of your EKG that you might be paying attention to? What is important for you to understand? And we will when the time is right. But just to give you an idea, if it is anterior 2/3rds of the interventricular septum that the left anterior descending is supplying and it is also supplying the lateral aspect of the heart a little bit. Then what might you be thinking about? The interventricular septum you still thinking about things like V1 and V2 leads. Does that make sense to you? And...

    Dr Raj, Is amazing at teaching. I have never gained as much knowledge in a short space of time and retained it. Thank you
