CARDIAC
EMERGENCIES
Andrew Crouch DO PGY-2
Question
• A 12-year-old boy is brought to the ED after being struck

in the chest by a baseball during a baseball game. He
collapsed immediately upon impact and has been
unresponsive since. Which of the following dysrhythmias
is most commonly associated with this condition?
• A Asystole
• B Ventricular Tachycardia
• C Ventricular Fibrillation

• D PEA
• E. SVT
Answer C (V-Fib)
• Commotio cordis
• occurs when an object such as a baseball strikes the

chest and produces sudden death. It most commonly
occurs in children between 5 and 15 years of age with
no known predisposing cardiac conditions.
Ischemic Heart Disease
• Leading cause of

Death in USA
• 30% all deaths

• Etiology
• Insufficient blood supply
to myocardium
• Risk factors
• Family history, smoking,
hypertension, diabetes,
• cholesterol, male >55
years old

• Global Hypotension

• Fixed Lesion
• Atherosclerosis
• Stable Angina
• Vasospasm
• Prinzmetal angina
• Drug induced
• Ruptured Plaque
• Leads to formation of
clot
• ACS
Coronary Anatomy
• Left Main Coronary
• LAD
• Widowmaker
• Anteroseptal

• Left Circumflex
• Anterolateral (if left dominant posterior)

• Right Coronary Artery
• Right ventricle
• Inferior
• SA node
• Posterior descending artery
• AV node
• Lead to mitral regurgitation and bradycardia
TIMI Score
• > 65 years old

• (0-1) 4.7%

• > = 3 cardiac risk

(2) 8.3%
• (3) 13.2%
• (4) 19.9%
(5) 26.2%
• (6 to 7) 40.9%
• Risk of death or MI
• Note there is no 0%
risk in this scale

factors
• Prior stenosis >50%
• ST segment deviation
• 2 anginal events in 24
hours
• Aspirin use within last
1 week
• Elevated CK
Chest Pain
Atypical Chest Pain

• Women Diabetic and

Elderly
• Fatique, nausea,
epigastric pain,
palpatations, chest wall
pain, total body dolor
• Chest pain absent in 18%
of Mis
• Account for 40-50% of
cases

Typical Chest pain

• Crushing
• Left chest
• Radiate to left arm, jaw,

back
• Diaphoresis
Signs of ACS
• Vitals
• Tachycardia, Bradycardia (RCA) , hypertension, hypotension
• Cardiac Exam
• New S3 or S4
• New Murmur
• Papillary muscle dysfunction
• Wall rupture

• Pulmonary crackles
• New friction Rub
ECG
• Initially abnormal in <50% of patients with ischemic chest

pain
• Meaning often it is perfectly normal
T wave morphology changes
• Hyperacute T waves
• Earliest sign
• Prominent symmetrical, pointy
• T wave flattening or inversion
• Can be due to a S#*% ton of things
ST segment Changes
• ST Elevation
• Elevation >1mm in 2 contiguous leads
• ST depression
• Measured from the PR segment to the ST segment
• Depression >1mm in 2 leads
• New Bundle Branch Block or AV block
• ST changes associated with increased mortality
QRS
Sgarbossa's criteria
• Three criteria are included in

Sgarbossa's criteria:
• ST elevation ≥1 mm in a lead

with a positive QRS complex (ie:
concordance) - 5 points
• ST depression ≥1 mm in lead
V1, V2, or V3 - 3 points
• ST elevation ≥5 mm in a lead
with a negative (discordant)
QRS complex - 2 points
• ≥3 points = 90% specificity of

STEMI (sensitivity of 36%)
Arrhythmias of ACS
• Bradycardia
• SA or AV node involvement
• Tachycardia
• Reperfusion, autonomic tone, hemodynamic instability
• V Fib
• Indication for immediate cath
• if not at ARMC
• Accelerated Idioventicular Rhythms
• Associated with reperfusion, Resemble V Tach with rate of 50-100
bpm
• DO NOT USE Antiarrhythmics such as lidocaine
AnteroSeptal MI
• Septal
• ST elevations in V1 and V2
• Anterior
• ST Elevations in V3 and V4
• LAD occlusion
• High grade Heart Blocks
A little harder
Lateral Wall MI

• Left Circumflex artery
Too Easy
Inferior
• Inferior
• ST elevations in II, III, aVF
• Primary RCA occlusion
• AV dysfunction
• Up to 25% have right ventricular infarction
• Do not give Nitro
Right sided ECG
• ST elevations in V4R

and V5R are
diagnostic of Right
ventricular infarct
WTF?
Posterior
• Large R waves & ST

depressions in V1
and V2
ECG changes correlate to Pathology
• ST changes in V1-4

• Anteroseptal

• V4-6, I, aVL

• Anterolateral

• I & aVL

• Lateral

• II, II, aVF

• Inferior

• II, III, aVF & V5-6

• Inferolateral

with ST elevation rV4
ECGs are not perfect

• Non diagnositic ECGs
• 4-7% of Acute MI
• 21-48% of UA
• New ischemic changes
• 25-73% of Acute MI
• 14-34% of UA
Cardiac Enzymes

• PE, Pericarditis, CHF, Shock, Renal failure, Remember it is a sign
of injury not infarction
• CK-MB
• Positive 3 to 8 hours less specific than troponin
• Useful for reinfarction due to shorter half life
Testing

abnormality
• Poor correlation

• Dobutamine Stress

Question

• A 62-year-old man presents to the ED with a mild cough and

URI symptoms. He was discharged from the hospital 2 weeks
ago after undergoing percutaneous intervention for an acute
myocardial infarction. You obtain an ECG (seen above) and
compare the current ECG to the ECG obtained when he was
admitted 2 weeks ago. You note that the morphologies are
similar. Which of the following is the most likely diagnosis?
• A Pericarditis
• B Postmyocardial infarction syndrome

Pulmonary embolism
D Ventricular aneurysm


C
Congestive Heart Failure
• 3.4 million ED visits per year
• 70-80% of patients with CHF die within 8 years
• Left vs Right
• High output vs low output
• High output due to metabolic demand (Hyperthyroid, beriberi, AV
fistula, Pagets disease, Anemia, Pregnancy)
• Low output (Decreased Ejection Fraction)
• Systolic vs Diastolic
• Systolic
• Poor Contractility of left ventricle
• Ejection fraction on ECHO < 40%

• Diastolic
• Poor Compliance
• Systolic function preserved
• 20-50% of patients with heart failure
Left vs Right
Right Heart failure

Left Sided Heart failure

• JVD

• Pulmonary Edema

• Dependent Edema

• Orthopnea

• Liver congestion

• Paroxysmal noctural

(hepatojuglar reflex)
• Causes

dyspnea
• Causes

• Left sided heart failure #1

• Systemic HTN

cause
• MR, COPD, Pulmonary
Stenosis
• Cardiomyopathy

• AS/AR

• Cardiomyopathy
• MI
Pathophysiology
Hemodynamic Model

• Left Ventriclar pressure

increases leading to high
end diastolic filling
pressure
• Leads to Pulmonary
congestion

Neurohormonal Model

• Inadequate end-organ
•

•

•
•

perfusion 
Increased sympathetic
nervous system and
renin-angiotensinaldosterone axis 
Vasoconstriction/ fluid
retention 
Increasing afterload
Increasing workload
