A woman in her 70s presented with sudden-onset central chest pain. She was known to have hypertension, which was well controlled with amlodipine maleate therapy. She sought medical help within 2 hours of the onset of pain and an electrocardiogram (ECG) was performed (Figure 1). No previous ECG was available for comparison.
Questions: What is the diagnosis and how should this patient be treated?
