After working through the seven steps, one has to draw a final conclusion. If one gets the question 'what do you see on the ECG?', the questioner probably is not waiting for a summation of the seven steps, but would like to hear your '''interpretation''' of the ECG. This interpretation, or final conclusion, is the starting point for treatment of the patient.

Often it is not easy to conclude. Exemples are:

'''Examples of conclusions are''':
* "Sinustachycardia with ST elevatie, likely be caused by acute myocardial infarction"
+
* "Sinus tachycardia with ST elevation, likely caused by acute myocardial infarction"
* "Supraventricular tachycardia of 200 beat per minute caused by an AV nodal re-entry"
+
* "Supraventricular tachycardia of 200 beats per minute caused by an AV nodal re-entry"
* "Previous infarction combined with an acute lateral myocard infarction with withening of the QRS complexes"
+
* "Previous infarction combined with an acute lateral myocardial infarction with widening of the QRS complexes"
 
* "Normal ECG"
 
* "Normal ECG"

Final conclusions should be made of one sentense, which sums all important aspects of the ECG. It is not nescecary to mention all 7 aspects, however one have to look at all of them to find the right conclusion!
