Benign Early Repolarization (BER)Created OnApril 21, 2020Last Updated OnApril 21, 2020byadmin You are here: Main ECG Benign Early Repolarization (BER) < All Topics Table of Contents Most commonly seen in young, healthy patients < 50 years of age It produces widespread ST segment elevation that may mimic pericarditis or acute MI Tips: Avoid diagnosing BER in patients over the age of 50, especially those with risk factors for ischemic heart disease ECG manifestation: Widespread concave ST elevation, most prominent in V2-5 Notching or slurring at the J-point T-waves that are concordant with the QRS complexes (pointing in the same direction). The degree of ST elevation is less than 25% of the T wave height in V6) ST elevation < 2mm in the precordial leads < 0.5mm in the limb leads, No reciprocal ST depression to suggest STEMI (except in aVR). ST changes are relatively stable over time (no progression on serial ECG tracings) *We do not own this youtube video or ECG, it’s for knowledge sharing purpose
