Mild ischemia is represented by up-sloping ST-segment depression. More severe ischemia is associated with horizontal or down-sloping ST depression of varying degree. The deeper the ST-segment depression, the greater the amount of ischemia. Down-sloping ST-segment depression or deep symmetrical Twave inversion is indicative of NSTEMI. With MI, there is accompanying cardiac enzyme (CK, troponin I and T, myoglobin) release. When the vessel is occluded and flow is absent, ST-segment elevation is indicative of STEMI.
