Understanding differences between stemi and nstemi | allnurses

Hello everyone! I& a nursing student and i& having some difficulty with understanding the difference in stemi and nstemi with MI and ACS. So, let me see if I can explain what I know and make

A red thrombus (ie clot) causing a 100% occlusion of a 4mm in diameter circumflex coronary artery which caused a ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction (ie heart attack). Never underestimate the ability of something so small to kill you.

Inferior MI     ST elevation in II, III, VF     Right coronary artery  Anterior MI     ST elevation in V3 to V4     Left anterior descending artery  Lateral MI     ST elevation in V5 to V6     Circumflex artery  Posterior MI     ST depression in V3 to V4

The ACC/AHA Criteria (1) (2)   ST-elevation in 2 contiguous leads that is:      * Men < 40: 2.5 mm ST-elevation in V2 or V3, 1 mm in any other lead      * Men > 40: 2.0 mm ST-elevation in V2 or V3, 1 mm in any other lead      * Women: >1.5 mm ST-elevation in V2 or V3, 1 mm in any other lead  STEMI's have a 90-minute door-to-balloon time mandate from the Center for  Medicare Services (CMS). To be good stewards of our resources we need to be  familiar the false positive STEMI patterns. …
