Activity Summary

Required reading for all learners: Implicit Bias impacts patient outcomes

This foundational course identifies acute myocardial infarction (MI) and ischemic 12 lead EKG changes. In addition to inferior, anterior and lateral wall MI, we explore right ventricular and posterior MI. Coronary artery obstructions are correlated with the heart structures supplied by those blood vessels. This aids our understanding of symptoms and possible complications seen with different types of MI. Angiography films showing patent and obstructed vessels enhance our learning.


  • Identify inferior, anterior, lateral, and posterior 12 lead EKG changes associated with myocardial infarction and ischemia.
  • Name the coronary artery supplying each geographical region of the heart.
  • Explain possible symptoms arising from blockage of each of the coronary arteries: right, left anterior and left circumflex.
