I Thought It Was a Heart Attack

My EKG is always confusing because of past damage but the troponin numbers showed no evidence of fresh heart cell death.  The ER cardiologist thought it was a spasm induced by last night standing in the absurd cold.  I may put off astronomy until night temperatures get above 40.

  1. I had bad arrythmia back around 2011. Ended it with a catheter ablation. My sister is having symptoms now so I wound up tracking down the Emay portable ECG on Amazon. Basically a single lead system that gives you information on whether or not you need to talk to your doctor.
