Answer: Elevation of any edematous (swollen) body part, especially an appendage, decreases inflammation by using gravity to aid venous return of blood back to the heart. In damaged tissue, blood will flow to the area for healing. When the damaged part is elevated, it promotes venous return. For elevation as a purpose of edema reduction to be truly effective, the elevated body part must be higher than the heart. In other words, if you are sitting on a couch with your ankle on a coffee table, that is not true elevation.

Answer: An ST elevation could possibly be acute Ischemia and if you were given this information in accordance with a recent ECG or EKG i would not hesitate to get a second opinion or check yourself into the nearest hospital for further examination. The ST segment of an ECG represents ventricular repolarization. This basically means that the cardiomyocytes in the heart and preparing for the heart to beat once again, preparing for another cardiac cycle. When their appear to be changes in the ST segment then this represents the hearts inability to sufficiently prepare for a reoccuring cardiac cycle and may cause significant damage leading to such illnesses or medical issues as Ischaemia and even chronic cardiac failure.
