Inferior wall and right ventricular infarct - ECG

ECG shows an inferior wall infarct i.e ST segment elevation in leads II, III and aVF.

The precordial V leads are actually right sided on this ECG. This is evident because the tracing in V6 does not resemble lead I and aVL. Also the P waves in V4 to V6 are flat.

ST depression in I and aVL along with ST elevation in right sided V3-V6 indicates right ventricular infarct.
