Brief Answer:
inferior wall MI is a possibility, if symptoms present shift pt EMS

Detailed Answer:
Hello , I am Dr . Mody and I would be address your concern .
An isolated review of ecg many a time leads to erroneous diagnosis and it's always wise to clinically corelate .
Two important things
What is the clinical status of the patient and if he having any active chest pain , palpitation, breathlessness.
If I only consider tge ecg .
There is ST elevation in the inferior leads 2, 3 and avf, reciprocal changes in 1 avl 50-60. .
If there is active chest pain , risk factors like smoking , drugs , hypertension, diabetes , kidney issues , family history of heart problem than
I will strongly consider shifting the patients to EMS

A inferior wall Myocardial infartion is likely possibly and it's wise to keep patient in observation .
Other things like the rhythm, pr interval , q's duration , all looks normal and so no arrythmia at present .
Considering your age is too young , a 2 d echocardiography, blood test like troponin should be done .
However in heart times is muscle , wasting more times is not wise .
Let me know if any clarification needed.
Also more details will help me help you better .

Brief Answer:
What is his present pulse rate , repeat ecg now if possible .

Detailed Answer:
Hello , The inferior wall infartion mean a that the inferior wall of the heart is not receiving enough blood causing a small heart attack .

Some background history about the patient . His age , medical history, and risk factors , what medication he is on will help me guide you better as what medication to take now and 2 at may be the reason of his symptoms

Also If possible and repeat ecg at present as already 20 hours have passed , so if Any dynamic change in the ecg are present we can know by comparing it with the previous one you had send .

Trust me guiding you without proper history will increase your anxiety , rather than being helpful.

If any trouble typing you can video call me .
