Abstract
Acute coronary syndromes (ACS) with narrow QRS are divided into 2 groups: ST-elevation ACS that requires emergency percutaneous coronary intervention, and non-ST elevation ACS. The classification of ACS into these 2 groups is not always straightforward. In this document, we discuss several electrocardiogram patterns of acute ischemia that are often misinterpreted. We suggest that any new recommendations or guidelines from the Scientific Societies should acknowledge these aspects of electrocardiogram interpretation by including appropriate diagnostic criteria that should prove helpful for the optimal management of patients with ACS.
