German term or phrase:erhoerter ST-Abgang, aszendierender ST-Streckenverlauf
I would like to know what the difference between an ST-Abgang and an ST-Streckenverlauf on an ECG is. Thank you.
"erhöhter ST-Abgang" means that the ST segment starts immediately from the downstroke of the R wave (simply: earlier than normal)
ascending ST segment means that the ST segment course is ascending / elevated compared to normal ECG
for normal EKG: see bottom of the a.m. website
for pathological findings: see Myokardinfarkt "Beispiel a+b" -- lead II ... you see both, early transition R --> ST segment and elevated ST segment.

elevates ST segment, ascending ST segment
Explanation: In a nutshell: In a normal ECG the ST segment leaves the QRS complex on the baseline. In a pathological situation the ST segment is found to be elevated, meaning leaving the QRS complex ABOVE the following ST line, also the ST line is typically but not always found to be elevated or ascending: All are classical ECG findings of an acute muocardial infarction.
