Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 64-year-old white male was brought to a rural emergency department (ED) because of substernal chest pain that radiated to his neck and left arm. His symptoms resolved unexpectedly, without any intervention, prior to arrival in the ED. The Electrocardiograph (ECG) showed a normal sinus rhythm with biphasic T waves in leads V2 to V3.
