My father experienced chest pain and back pain two days ago. He is 74 years old and diabetic. His BP was 130/84 mmHg and he takes medicine for high BP. His pulse rate was 95. His fasting sugar reading is 126 and PP is 154 with medication. We went for an ECG and something written on the graph as sinus rhythm, left atrial abnormality, leftward axis, QRS (T) contour abnormality and consider inferior infarct. However, in the handwritten report, the doctor wrote the conclusion as normal. What can we conclude from this? Is there anything to be done?
