STRIVE TM EMS Reperfusion Checklist: Evaluation of the STEMI Patient Step 1: Has patient experienced chest discomfort for > 15 min and < 12 h? YES NO STOP Step 2: Are there contraindications to fibrinolysis? If ANY of the following are CHECKED, fibrinolysis MAY be contraindicated. Systolic BP greater than 180 mm Hg Diastolic BP greater than 110 mm Hg Right vs left arm systolic BP difference greater than 15 mm Hg History of structural central nervous system disease Recent (< 6 wk) major trauma, surgery (including laser eye surgery), GI/GU bleed Bleeding or clotting problem or on blood thinners CPR greater than 10 min Pregnant female Serious systemic disease (eg, advanced/terminal cancer, severe liver or kidney disease) Significant closed head/facial trauma within the previous 3 months Step 3: Is patient at high risk such that PCI is preferable? Heart rate greater than or equal to 100 bpm Pulmonary edema (rales greater than halfway up) Systolic BP less than 100 mm Hg Systemic hypoperfusion (cool, clammy) □ Yes □ No Adapted from Antman EM, et al.

STRIVE TM STEMI Critical Pathways Fibrinolysis Indications 3-hr symptom onset Delay in PCI (door-to-balloon >90 min) Contraindications to PCI: poor arterial access, renal failure, dye allergy Reperfusion Therapy Indications: Chest pain <12 hours, EKG ST-elevations or new left bundle branch block Primary PCI Indications >3-hr symptom onset Presence of cardiogenic shock, CHF, contraindications to fibrinolysis Stat cardiology consult/catheterization lab page Assess for contraindications for fibrinolytic therapy: 1.History of hemorrhagic stroke at any time; other stroke or cerebrovascular event within 1 year 2.Known intracranial neoplasm 3.Active internal bleeding 4.Suspected aortic dissection (consider CT of chest) Reteplase (Retavase) 10 units IV bolus, repeat 10 units IV bolus at 30 minutes HEPARIN THERAPY: (administer simultaneously with Retavase): Unfractionated heparin: ___units IV bolus (1000 units/ml), then ___units/hour IV infusion Note: When using a fibrinolytic (eg, reteplase): Use Cardiac Unfractionated Heparin Nomogram on back of form Eptifibatide (Integrilin) _____ml IV bolus, then ____ml/hr IV infusion (dosing nomogram on back of form) (Dose adjustment based on serum creatinine may be required.) Unfractionated heparin _____ units IV bolus (1000 units/ml), then ______units/hour IV infusion
