Examines the use of high leads in the early diagnosis of myocardial infarction. Use of electrocardiographic confirmation to enable clinicians to begin an early, intensive and rational therapy without fear of untoward consequences; Plausibility for the addition of precordial leads to give important diagnostic information at an earlier time; Significance of the study on the development of novel diagnostic tool that could help the diagnosis of myocardial infarction.
