The first sentence of the first paragraph in the left column on page 40 should have read:
Using a criterion of twice the upper limit of normal value for serum CK-MB as the ‘gold standard’ for confirmation of myocardial injury, the investigators in the Wong et al. (19) study demonstrate a high specificity for the criteria >1 mm elevation in any lead or ST-segment depression in V1through V3, but low sensitivity and low specificity for ≥5 mm discordant ST-segment elevation in any lead.
The author regrets this error.
