Post myocardial infarction ECG wave tracings

Various phases can be seen through ECG wave tracings following a heart attack. Hyperacute phase begins immediately after a heart attack. Fully evolved phase starts a few hours to days after a heart attack. Resolution phase appears a few weeks after a heart attack. Stabilized chronic phase is the last phase and typically has permanent pathological changes compared to a normal ECG tracing.
