In China, fewer STEMI patients complicated by OHAC, who remained unconscious when arriving at the hospital, received emergency PCI; relevant clinical data are still lacking.
The four-step protocol for STEMI patients includes: (1) Standardized emergency department (ED) cardiac catheterization lab activation criteria, (2) A STEMI Safe Handoff Checklist, (3) Immediate transfer to an available catheterization lab, and (4) Using the radial artery in the wrist as the first option for percutaneous (under the skin) coronary intervention, like stenting.
In resource-crunched settings like rural India, where Cath Lab facilities are scarce, thrombolytic therapy is still an important part of the early treatment of STEMI.
In a single-centre study of 97 STEMI patients who were haemodynamically unstable and required intra-aortic balloon pump, the AKI-associated mortality rate was 50%, with an in-hospital mortality relative risk of 12.
The Resolute Integrity and Resolute Onyx stents are not indicated for the treatment of STEMI patients in the United States.
The most common STEMI symptom is a chest pain, which may travel from the chest into the shoulder, arm, neck or jaw, perhaps to the left side of the body, and will last for more than a few minutes.
Aspirin is recommended in the ESC and ACCF/AHA guidelines as it has been used for patients with STEMI (Class I).
Hyperlipidemia and site of infarction didn't have statistically significant effect on the resolution of ECG post thrombolysis in STEMI patients.
1] The cornerstone of STEMI management is early revascularisation, either by primary percutaneous coronary intervention or fibrinolytic therapy, in conjunction with other adjunctive pharmaceutical agents.
ER physicians, cardiologists and other clinicians can quickly and easily view ECG exams to treat patients with STEMI (ST segment elevation myocardial infarction) as well as other heart conditions and illnesses.
The results of the general linear model analysis for STEMI patients from networked hospitals revealed that ERS implementation is an independent risk factor for shortened DBT.
