Never Put Off Till Tomorrow What You Can Do Today

More than 30 years ago the hypothesis of an interventional approach in patients with unstable angina or non–ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) was considered only after a "cooling-off" period. This negative attitude was in part justified by the lack of effective antithrombotic adjunctive therapies and devices in the management of lesion containing thrombus and the subsequent early hazard of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). The delay—many days or weeks after hospital admission—to...

is achieved by decreasing the cardiac output, decreasing sympathetic outflow from the CNS, as well as suppressing renin release which reduces peripheral vascular resistance. (www.drugs.com) The primary indication for Metoprolol is in post myocardial infarction and management of angina. Early administration of Metoprolol within hours of AMI has been shown to reduce mortality in these patients. (Hoffman et al., 2000) Other indications include treatment of hypertension. It is one of the preferred...

Coronary Artery Disease

flow to the heart is reduced as plaque narrows the coronary arteries, thereby decreasing the oxygen supply to the heart muscle. This loss of oxygen in the blood can lead to ischemia and later, myocardial infarction. The patient in this case is a 63 year old male with CAD that led to a myocardial infarction in April of 2003. In speaking with the patient about his condition, a series of questions regarding the meaning of the illness to him, his family, and how he dealt with it were asked. The patient...

Case Study

blood flow to your heart. Cholesterol deposits slowly, over decades, build up in the vessel wall and cause a decrease in blood flow. A patient with decreased blood flow to the heart may have angina, shortness of breath, and in some cases a myocardial infarction. 2. Mr. S's BMI is calculated using his height and weight, once I did the calculation I determined that Mr. S's BMI is 25.8, and according to the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute he is categorized as “overweight”, but just barely....

the cardiac tissue, and stimulate the myocardial tissue to contract. • The autonomic nervous system plays an important role in the rate of impulse formation, the speed of conduction, and the strength of cardiac contraction. 
Electrocardiogram Monitoring • The electrocardiogram (ECG) is a graphic tracing of the electrical impulses produced in the heart. • ECG waveforms are produced by the movement of charged ions across the semipermeable membranes of myocardial cells. • There are 12 recording leads...
