44 year old female that had had chest pain and was put on a 12 lead the other day and was diagnosed with anterosrptal infarct. Is this serious?
Very often: If you have no history of heart disease, this is likely to be wrong. It's based on abnormal voltage of the R wave in lead v2 and is very often due to lead placement. If your doctor moves the leads around a little (usually going up or down a rib interspace), the infarct pattern often disappears. An echo or nuclear stress test can also rule this out. ...Read more

I had ECG last year and the findings was I have anteroseptal wall infarction. I went to my cardiologist and said it was all normal. What can this be?
Hx of WPW, ablation. Lately, HR of 120-140, palpitations off/on. EKG says "probable anteroseptal infarction, old". Should I be concerned/followup?
The computer: Interpretation of anteroseptal infarction is undoubtably in error. The computer algorithm is skewed to provide an abnormal reading. The tachycardia however may suggest a recurrence of your WPW pathway. It would be very reasonable to report your symptoms and heart rates to the physician who treated you. Followup would be appropriate but not because of the EKG reading. ...Read more
