  • 12. ACC/AHA Guidelines for the Management of Patients with ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction Management Before STEMI
  • 13. Identification of Patients at Risk of STEMI The presence and status of control of major risk factors for CHD should be evaluated approximately every 3 to 5 years. 10-year risk of developing symptomatic CHD should be calculated for all patients with ≥ 2 major risk factors to assess the need for primary prevention strategies.
  • 14. Identification of Patients at Risk of STEMI Patients with established CHD or a CHD risk equivalent (diabetes mellitus, chronic kidney disease, > 20% 10-year Framingham risk) should be identified for secondary prevention.
  • 15. ACC/AHA Guidelines for the Management of Patients with ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction Onset of STEMI
  • 16. Patient Education for Early Recognition and Response to STEMI Patients should understand the advisability of calling 9-1-1 if symptoms are unimproved or worsening after 5 minutes. Patients should understand their risk of STEMI and how to recognize symptoms of STEMI.
  • 17. If you have any heart attack symptoms, CALL 9-1-1 immediately. Don’t wait for more than a few minutes – 5 at most – to call 9-1-1. ACT in TIME http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/actintime/index.htm. Accessed December 20, 2004.
  • 18. Patient Education for Early Recognition and Response to STEMI Healthcare providers should instruct patients previously prescribed nitroglycerin (NTG) on use for chest discomfort or pain and to call 9-1-1 if symptoms do not improve or worsen 5 minutes after ONE sublingual NTG dose*. (* Nitroglycerin Dose: 0.4 mg sublingually)
  • 19. Prehospital Chest Pain Evaluation and Treatment Prehospital EMS providers should administer 162 to 325 mg of aspirin (chewed) to chest pain patients suspected of having STEMI unless contraindicated or already taken by the patient. Although some trials have used enteric-coated aspirin for initial dosing, more rapid buccal absorption occurs with non–enteric-coated formulations. It is reasonable for all 9-1-1 dispatchers to advise patients without a history of aspirin allergy who have symptoms of STEMI to chew aspirin (162 to 325 mg) while awaiting arrival of prehospital EMS providers. Although some trials have used enteric-coated aspirin for initial dosing, more rapid buccal absorption occurs with non–enteric-coated formulations.
  • 20. Has the patient been previously prescribed nitroglycerin? No Is Chest Discomfort/Pain Unimproved or Worsening 5 Minutes After It Starts? Yes No CALL 9-1-1 IMMEDIATELY. Follow 9-1-1 instructions. [Patients may receive instructions to chew aspirin (162-325 mg) if not contraindicated or may receive aspirin en route to the hospital.] Notify Physician. Instructions for Nitroglycerin Use and EMS Contact Patient experiences chest pain/discomfort
  • 21. Take ONE Nitroglycerin Dose Sublingually. Is Chest Discomfort/Pain Unimproved or Worsening 5 Minutes After Taking ONE Nitroglycerin Dose* Sublingually? Yes Yes No See ACC/AHA Guidelines for the Management of Patients with Chronic Stable Angina. Has the patient been previously prescribed nitroglycerin? Instructions for Nitroglycerin Use and EMS Contact CALL 9-1-1 IMMEDIATELY. * Nitroglycerin Dose: 0.4 mg sublingually Patient experiences chest pain/discomfort

  • 34. Electrocardiogram If the initial ECG is not diagnostic of STEMI, serial ECGs or continuous ST-segment monitoring should be performed in the patient who remains symptomatic or if there is high clinical suspicion for STEMI.
  • 35. Electrocardiogram Show 12-lead ECG results to emergency physician within 10 minutes of ED arrival in all patients with chest discomfort (or anginal equivalent) or other symptoms of STEMI. In patients with inferior STEMI, ECG leads should also be obtained to screen for right ventricular infarction.
  • 36. Laboratory Examinations Laboratory examinations should be performed as part of the management of STEMI patients, but should not delay the implementation of reperfusion therapy .
    • Serum biomarkers for cardiac damage
    • Complete blood count (CBC) with platelets
    • International normalized ratio (INR)
    • Activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT)
    • Electrolytes and magnesium
    • Blood urea nitrogen (BUN)
    • Creatinine
    • Glucose
    • Complete lipid profile
  • 37. Biomarkers of Cardiac Damage Cardiac-specific troponins should be used as the optimum biomarkers for the evaluation of patients with STEMI who have coexistent skeletal muscle injury. For patients with ST elevation on the 12-lead ECG and symptoms of STEMI, reperfusion therapy should be initiated as soon as possible and is not contingent on a biomarker assay.

  • 39. Imaging Patients with STEMI should have a portable chest X-ray, but this should not delay implementation of reperfusion therapy (unless a potential contraindication is suspected, such as aortic dissection ). Imaging studies such as a high quality portable chest X-ray, transthoracic and/or transesophageal echocardiography, and a contrast chest CT scan or an MRI scan should be used for differentiating STEMI from aortic dissection in patients for whom this distinction is initially unclear.

  • 40. Oxygen Supplemental oxygen should be administered to patients with arterial oxygen desaturation (SaO 2 < 90%). It is reasonable to administer supplemental oxygen to all patients with uncomplicated STEMI during the first 6 hours.

  • 41. Nitroglycerin Patients with ongoing ischemic discomfort should receive sublingual NTG (0.4 mg) every 5 minutes for a total of 3 doses, after which an assessment should be made about the need for intravenous NTG. Intravenous NTG is indicated for relief of ongoing ischemic discomfort that responds to nitrate therapy, control of hypertension, or management of pulmonary congestion.
  • 42. Nitrates should not be administered to patients with: Nitrates should not be administered to patients who have received a phosphodiesterase inhibitor for erectile dysfunction within the last 24 hours (48 hours for tadalafil).
    • systolic pressure < 90 mm Hg or ≥ to 30 mm Hg below baseline
    • severe bradycardia (< 50 bpm)
    • tachycardia (> 100 bpm) or
    • suspected RV infarction.
    Nitroglycerin
  • 43. Analgesia Morphine sulfate (2 to 4 mg intravenously with increments of 2 to 8 mg intravenously repeated at 5 to 15 minute intervals) is the analgesic of choice for management of pain associated with STEMI.
  • 44. Aspirin Aspirin should be chewed by patients who have not taken aspirin before presentation with STEMI. The initial dose should be 162 mg ( Level of Evidence: A ) to 325 mg ( Level of Evidence: C ) Although some trials have used enteric-coated aspirin for initial dosing, more rapid buccal absorption occurs with non–enteric-coated formulations.
  • 45. Oral beta-blocker therapy should be administered promptly to those patients without a contraindication, irrespective of concomitant fibrinolytic therapy or performance of primary PCI. It is reasonable to administer intravenous beta-blockers promptly to STEMI patients without contraindications, especially if a tachyarrhythmia or hypertension is present. Beta-Blockers

  • 47. Reperfusion
    • Given the current literature, it is not possible to say definitively that a particular reperfusion approach is superior for all pts, in all clinical settings, at all times of day
    • The main point is that some type of reperfusion therapy should be selected for all appropriate pts with suspected STEMI
    • The appropriate & timely use of some reperfusion therapy is likely more important than the choice of therapy
  • 48. Reperfusion The medical system goal is to facilitate rapid recognition and treatment of patients with STEMI such that door - to- needle (or medical contact – to-needle) time for initiation of fibrinolytic therapy can be achieved within 30 minutes or that door-to-balloon (or medical contact – to- balloon) time for PCI can be kept within 90 minutes .

  • 62. PCI vs Lysis: Additional Data
    • Mortality advantage of PCI diminishes : As risk with lytic decreases: PCI = Lysis at 3% With increasing delay: PCI = Fibrin spec lytic with 60 min delay RR = 1.08 for every 30 min from onset of sx The earlier patient is seen: PCI = Lysis in < 3 h from sx
    • Outcomes with PCI are influenced by time of day and operator/institution volume and experience
    • Trials of transfer for PCI: Had very short transport and D-B times PCI mortality higher than prehospital lysis in pts treated early (2h)
    JACC 2004;44: 671 Circ 2004;110: 588
  • 63. Fibrinolysis In the absence of contraindications, fibrinolytic therapy should be administered to STEMI patients with symptom onset within the prior 12 hours. In the absence of contraindications, fibrinolytic therapy should be administered to STEMI patients with symptom onset within the prior 12 hours and new or presumably new left bundle branch block (LBBB).
  • 64. Fibrinolysis In the absence of contraindications, it is reasonable to administer fibrinolytic therapy to STEMI patients with symptom onset within the prior 12 hours and 12-lead ECG findings consistent with a true posterior MI. In the absence of contraindications, it is reasonable to administer fibrinolytic therapy to patients with symptoms of STEMI beginning in the prior 12 to 24 hours who have continuing ischemic symptoms and ST elevation > 0.1 mV in ≥ 2 contiguous precordial leads or ≥ 2 adjacent limb leads.
  • 65. Fibrinolysis Fibrinolytic therapy should not be administered to asymptomatic patients whose initial symptoms of STEMI began more than 24 hours earlier. Fibrinolytic therapy should not be administered to patients whose 12-lead ECG shows only ST-segment depression, except if a true posterior MI is suspected.

  • 67. Primary PCI for STEMI: General Considerations
    • Patient with STEMI (including posterior MI) or MI with new or presumably new LBBB
    • PCI of infarct artery within 12 hours of symptom onset
    • Balloon inflation within 90 minutes of presentation
    • Skilled personnel available (individual performs > 75 procedures per year)
    • Appropriate lab environment (lab performs > 200 PCIs/year of which at least 36 are primary PCI for STEMI)
    • Cardiac surgical backup available
  • 68. Primary PCI for STEMI: Specific Considerations Medical contact – to-balloon or door-to-balloon should be within 90 minutes. PCI preferred if > 3 hours from symptom onset.
