What Does "possible Inferior Infarct, Age Undetermined" Mean on an EKG?

An EKG/ECG that finds dead tissue of undetermined age in the inferior heart wall is called an "inferior infarct, age undetermined." An infarct is heart tissue that dies from a heart attack, which electrocardiograms, or EKG/ECG, detect because the dead muscle no longer contracts, according to WebMD and the American Heart Association.
