The correct interpretation incudes normal sinus rhythm, inferior MI, possible anterior MI, and ST-T wave abnormalities.
Normal sinus rhythm is evidenced by a P wave for every QRS and a QRS for every P wave with a normal PR interval and a rate > 60 and < 100 beats/min.
An old inferior MI is indicated by the Q waves in inferior leads II, III, and aVF. The absence of ST-segment elevation in these leads also contributes to the diagnosis of an old rather than new MI. Possible anterior MI can be inferred from the poor R-wave progression in leads V1 through V3 with the absence of ST elevation.
ST-T wave abnormalities are evidenced by the chronic ST-segment elevation in V1 and V2 with T-wave inversions in leads V3 through V6 and in aVF. These may be due to remodeling and/or ECG lead placement.
The patient was subsequently cleared for his shoulder repair.
