Welcome to the ECG Challenge
STEMI vs. STE-mics
The Goal: To enhance clinician awareness of STEMI vs STE-mics
  • STEMI = ST-elevation myocardial infarction
    Defined by the 2004 ACC/AHA STEMI Guidelines as >1mm ST-segment elevation in two contiguous leads (either precordial or limb leads).

  • STE-mics = ST-elevation mimics
    A generic term for conditions that cause ECG ST-elevation, but do not represent acute cardiac ischemia.
This 11-item ECG Challenge was designed by Emergency Medicine Physicians with ECG expertise in partnership with the American College of Cardiology (ACC) door-to-balloon (D2B) initiative.

  • The ECG challenge is an educational tool. It is NOT a test.
  • No individual or aggregate scores will be tracked by the website.
  • No demographics will be tracked.
  • The website is not industry sponsored.

All participants must be using Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 or greater.
