Factors Influencing the St-Segment Mapping Evaluation (A Model Study)

  • Z. Drška


During recent years experiments were described trying to utilise ST isopotential praecordial maps for the evaluation of acute myocardial infarction and its development (Kronenberg et al., 1976; Madias and Wood, 1977; Hardarson et al., 1978; Murray et al., 1979).
