Working After working through the seven steps, one still has to draw a final conclusion. If one get's gets the question 'what do you see on the ECG?', the questioneer 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 further treatment of the patient.
'''Examples of conclusions are''':
* "Sinustachycardia Sinus tachycardia with ST elevation, likely caused by acute myocardial infarction"
* "Supraventricular tachycardia of 200 beats per minute caused by an AV nodal re-entry"
* "Previous infarction combined with an acute lateral myocard myocardial infarction with widening of the QRS complexes"
* "Normal ECG"
Final conclusions should consist of one sentence, which sums up all important aspects of the ECG. It is not necessary to mention all 7 aspects, however although one has to look at all of them to find the right conclusion!
