ECG of the Week - 26th August 2013 - Interpretation

This ECG is from an 85yr old female who presented complaining of worsening dysponea and atypical chest pain. She has known atrial fibrillation and COPD
At the time of clinical review we luckily had access to her old ECG's and a recent echo.
I plan to include her echo results with the interpretation post although the ECG might give some clues as to the findings.
