Addendum 10 JUL 2012 14:15 PM CST:
This EKG probably warrants a letter to the editor of JACC. First of all, as has been pointed out by several individuals on Twitter (thanks @mzkhalil and @tobymarkowitz), it would be unusual for DC current to affect only the ST segment of the patient's EKG. Other causes of these findings include hyperventillation syndrome, coronary vasospasm (though this is usually associated with chest discomfort) or CNS disease to the EKG findings of an acute injury pattern, neither of which were discussed as possible causes for the findings, rather than a direct cause-and-effect of DC current from ingested batteries.
At least that's my two cents.
