7 General Therapy MONA Morphine (q 5-15 min CLASS I) Oxygen (pulse ox>90% CLASS I)Nitroglycerin (0.4 mg SL NTG x 3 for ischemic pain CLASS I)Aspirin
8 AspirinAspirin 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). Class IIn a dose of 162 mg or more, aspirin produces a rapid clinical antithrombotic effect caused by immediate and near-total inhibition of thromboxane A2 production.

17 ReperfusionSTEMI patients presenting to a hospital with PCI capability should be treated with primary PCI within 90 min of first medical contact as a systems goal. Class IaSTEMI patients presenting to a hospital without PCI capability, and who cannot be transferred to a PCI center and undergo PCI within 90 min of first medical contact, should be treated with fibrinolytic therapy within 30 min of hospital presentation as a systems goal, unless fibrinolytic therapy is contraindicated. Class IbNote “medical contact” is defined as the “time of EMS arrival on scene” after the patient calls EMS/9-1-1 or the “time of arrival at the emergency department door” (whether PCI-capable or non–PCI-capable hospital) when the patient self-transports.

19 Brief Review of Thrombolytic Trials GISSI-1: Streptokinase 18% reduction in mortality at 21 dGUSTO-1: tPA. 15% reduction in 30-day mortality compared to StreptokinaseGUSTO-3: Reteplase had no benefit over tPA but is easier to use (double bolus)ASSENT: TNKase is similar to tPA but with less non-cerebral bleeding and better mortality with symptoms>4 hrs: Single bolus, fibrin selective, resistance to PAI-1*Overall risk of ICH is 0.7%; Strokes occurred in 1.4%
20 AnticoagulantsPatients undergoing reperfusion with fibrinolytics should receive anticoagulant therapy for a minimum of 48 hours (unfractionated heparin) or up to 8 daysAnticoagulant regimens with established efficacy include:♥ UFH (LOE: C)♥ Enoxaparin (LOE:A)♥ Fondaparinux (LOE:B)Reduction in Mortality
21 Summary of Observations from Trials of Anticoagulants for STEMI Efficacy (through 30 d)SafetyUse During PCIReviparinFibrinolysis: probably superiorto placebo.*No reperfusion: probably superior to placebo.*↑ risk of serious bleeds†No data on reviparin alone during PCI. Additional anticoagulant with anti-IIa activity, such as UFH or bivalirudin, recommended.FondaparinuxFibrinolysis: appears superior to control rx (placebo/UFH). Relative benefit vs placebo and UFH separately cannot be reliably determined from available data.*Primary PCI: when used alone, no advantage over UFH and trend toward worse outcome.No reperfusion: appears superior to control therapy (placebo/UFH). Relative benefit versus placebo and UFH separately cannot be reliably determined from available data.*Trend toward ↓ risk of serious bleeds†↑ risk of catheter thrombosis when fondaparinux used alone. Additional anticoagulant with anti-IIa activity, such as UFH or bivalirudin, recommended.EnoxaparinFibrinolysis: appears superior to UFHEnoxaparin can be used to support PCI after fibrinolysis. No additional anticoagulant needed.* See 2007 STEMI Focused Update for further discussion and subgroup analysis (Antman EM, et al.

26 Case Presentation51 y.o. man with increasing shortness of breath and chest pain x 60minCame to ED because she can no longer walk up a flight of stairs or lay down flat.No N/V/Diaphoresis. No LH or dizzinessNo known history of cardiac or pulmonary disease.
27 Physical Exam Vital Signs: HR 120; BP 90/60; RR 28. General: Alert and oriented x 3. Mild respiratory distress.HEENT: NC, no trauma.Neck: Supple, no lymphadenopathy.Heart: Regular S1 and S2. 2/6 early SEM along L sternal border (no significant radiation). No carotid bruits. ? JVD.Lungs: Tachypnic. Rales 1/3 up the back bilaterally. Otherwise clear.Abdomen: Obese. BenignExtremities: Warm. No C/C. Trace edema.
32 Ventricular Arrhythmias BPM; Up to 20% STEMI patients have thisUsually a result of reperfusion; no specific therapy needed if HD stable. Otherwise, atropine or even atrial pacing may increase sinus rate to overdrive pace the AIVRRoutine post-MI management with B-blockers, ACE, etc.
33 PVC’s Extremely common, along with short runs of NSVT Amiodarone won’t increase mortality, other antiarrhythmics (other than B-blockers) do.B-blockers, electrolytesBest if no antiarrhythmics are used
34 Not So Benign RhythmIschemic VT is often polymorphic; HR> BPMHigher risk with more LV damage and in first 2 days after MITreat: DCCV, cath lab (if needed), electrolyte correction, amiodarone, lidocaine, B-Blockers
35 If That Didn’t Make You Nervous… Primary VF: Sudden event with no warning--10% STEMI patients before lytics. MUCH MUCH less nowSecondary VF: Occurring in setting HF or shockLate VF: >48 hrs after MI-->Increased risk with IVCD, anterior wall MI, persistent SVT early in course, and RV infarction requiring pacing***Have to worry about structural complication (free wall rupture)/ischemiaTreat: Non-synced DCCV, electrolyte correction
36 Why get worked up about electrolytes? NOTE: Pre-lytic studyNordrehaug JE, van der Lippe G: Hypokalemia and ventricular fibrillation in acute myocardial infarction. Br Heart J 50:525, 1983.
37 Sinus Bradycardia/Junctional Escape Rhythm 4-5% of STEMI patients have a bradyarrhythmiaSinus node ischemia--Blood supply to SA node is: 65% RCA, 25% LCX, 10% dual supply.Most commonly seen in Inferior/posterior MI’s.Often induced by vagal reaction that may be protective
38 Atrioventricular Block First-Degree: Usually the RCA and does not require treatment. Hold the B-blocker for PR>240 msSecond-Degree: Usually RCA disease and does not require treatment unless HR less than 50 and arrhythmia or symptoms. Otherwise, atropine or paceThird-Degree: Can be from any location of infarct. Can be preceded by Mobitz II BlockPace for symptoms and for hemodynamic support. Usually not needed in inferior MI’s as block is transient (pace for HR<40-50)
39 Post-MI VSD ~2% of acute MI’s prior to reperfusion era ~0.2% in GUSTO-I streptokinase trialWithout reperfusion, usually occurs within first weekDay 1--Large intramural hematomas that dissectDay 3-5--Coagulation necrosis24 hr or less if receive lysis--Lytics reduce infarct size but may promote hemorrhagic dissection of myocardium
40 Symptoms, Exam, and Diagnosis Chest pain, dyspneaPE: Harsh, holosystolic murmur along sternal border radiating to base/apex/R parasternum; thrill in 1/2 patients; S3; Loud P2; TR.Compared to acute MR, murmur is loud. Up to 20% of patients may have MR as well though
41 CCU Management IABP Ventilation Diuresis/HF Management Inotropes (can increase shunt)Nitroprusside if tolerated (can cause hypotension)Mortality with conservative management is HIGH (24%, 46%, 67-82% at 24 hrs, 1 wk, and 2 months, respectively)Ultimately, mechanical closure needed (surgery vs. percutaneous)-TIMING is questionable but clinical status should not preclude this
42 Acute Mitral Regurgitation Caused by papillary muscle ischemia or rupture (less likely). Rupture is usually partial since total is essentially incompatible with lifeUsually in setting of inferior MI involving the posteromedial papillary muscle (single PDA blood supply as opposed to anterolateral)Rupture usually occurs 3-5 days post-MI and in 1% of MI’s and requires emergent operative repair (50% mortality in 24 hrs)Accounts for 7% of cardiogenic shock and 5% of mortality associated with acute MIArea of infarction does NOT have to be large
43 Symptoms, Exam, Diagnosis Symptoms: Those of heart failurePE: May or may not hear loud systolic murmur (need a gradient)
44 CCU Management Mechanical ventilation if needed IABP--especially for hypotensionPCI if papillary m. ischemia (not rupture)Afterload reduction (nitroprusside if possible) to MAP of mm HgSince mortality is 90% with medical therapy alone, surgery is the major therapy of choicePerioperative mortality 20-25%Overall surgical mortality is even higher
45 Free Wall Rupture ~10% of patients who die in hospital from STEMI Most commonly between 1 and 4 days (up to 3 weeks)Caused by tear or dissecting hematomaMore common with fibrinolysis compared to PCIMore common in patients without previous infarction
46 Symptoms, Exam, Diagnosis Acute symptoms include sudden chest pain (esp with cough, strain) and sudden deathSubacute symptoms: Pericarditis-like symptoms (chest pain, nausea, vomiting)Exam (think HF and tamponade): JVD, pulsus, diminished heart sounds, rub, possibly a new murmur
47 Treatment Pericardiocentesis if time Surgical repair is the only treatmentMortality is reasonable ifpatient gets to the ORin time90% mortality withoutsurgery
48 Summary of Acute STEMI Complications Much more rare in the reperfusion eraLook for them especially in delayed presentationArrhythmias are most common complication and may require emergent treatmentVSD’s, papillary muscle rupture, and free wall ruptures carry a VERY high mortality and require emergent surgical consultationSupport mechanically until patient receives operation
