EKG Criteria and Identification of Acute Coronary Occlusion

The objective of this research study is to test the accuracy of preexisting criteria versus expert interpretation for the diagnosis of acute coronary occlusion (major heart attack due to a completely blocked blood vessel). If our hypothesis proves to be true, this would provide a significant improvement in the care for patients who present to the hospital with possible symptoms of coronary ischemia (symptoms due to lack of blood flow to the heart). The primary analysis will be designed as a multi-center, retrospective case-control study.
