ECG of the Week - 27th October 2014 - Interpretation

This ECG is from a 70 yr old male who presented complaining of dysponea and cough.
I'm sorry for the quality of this ECG, it's a copy of a copy which has then been scanned. I've elected to include it on the blog as I think it's a nice ECG example despite the poor quality.
