Apparently, the second 12 lead was after 150 mg of amiodarone. The hilarity is the amiodarone.

I received this in an email. It is reported to have been posted on Facebook, but I choose not to have access to Facebook, so I do not have any more details. I am occasionally tempted to set up an account again, but I generally prefer intentional comedy.

Everything you need to know is in the first 12 lead.

Things that do not matter:

Distance to the hospital.

Time of onset.

Last meal.

National Registry certification.

Et cetera.



  1. Wow. My first thought (ok, maybe it was my first thought only because of the set-up in the article):

  2. The question is though, does all this push interventions to ALS 2 reimbursement.
