MVO2-demand on the heart and chest pain ADMIT THE HISTORY Chest Pain w/ Lying Down , Valsalva & Hand Grip A pearl to remember is that even myocardial ischemia can worsen with recumbency (angina decubiti) due to an increase in venous return and a temporary greater workload. Valsalva: Warning: causes a 45% reduction in coronary blood flow velocity=lethal dysrhythmia Hand Grip: increases MVO2; like an exercise test CHEST PAIN: WHAT CAN HELP YOU CLINICALLY PHYSICAL EXAM? NO! NORMAL ECG? NO! NORMAL ENZYMES? NO! NO CHEST PAIN?

ESPECIALLY FOR INTERMEDIATE (NEW T-WAVE INVERSION) OR HIGH RISK(ST 1 mm CHANGES) Does Heparin Help? In Unstable Angina: prevents a partial clot from progressing to complete occlusion In Acute Myocardial Infarction: decreases the complications of embolic problems, ie LV aneurysm and CHF emboli IV Heparin ACLS 2000: New Protocol based on Key Study in NEJM by Judith Hochman, MD at SLRHC <70 kg: 60U/kg IV bolus & 12U/kg/hr drip >70 kg: 4000U Max bolus & 900U/hr drip Goal PTT: 46-70: only check PTT 6 hours after the bolus!!!

PATIENTS WITH UNSTABLE ANGINA who carry high risk markers need angiography Patients with chronic stable angina who begin to fail medical therapy Those patients with low-risk clinical profiles and who respond to medical therapy may NOT NEED CATH & ANGIO, a noninvasive test such as a stress sestamibi-technesium, or thallium scan(cold spot:need Na/K ATPase) may suffice Pyrophosphate scan: hot spot=necrosis Patient with new systolic murmur after AMI Wellens’ Syndrome Recognition of this ECG pattern associated with a critical stenosis of the proximal left anterior descending coronary artery can prevent a devastating anterior AMI ECG: biphasic T-waves in V2 &V3 Rx: need CATH, and not stress test=can precipitate death What is the Diagnosis?
