Slide 1 - Acute Coronary Syndrome MINI LECTURE Kelvin Nguyen
Slide 2 - OBJECTIVES Definition of ACS UA, NSTEMI, and STEMI Risk stratification in NSTEMI Management
Slide 3 - Acute Coronary Syndrome Definition: a constellation of symptoms related to obstruction of coronary arteries with chest pain being the most common symptom in addition to nausea, vomiting, diaphoresis etc. Chest pain concerned for ACS is often radiating to the left arm or angle of the jaw, pressure-like in character, and associated with nausea and sweating. Chest pain is often categorized into typical and atypical angina.
Slide 4 - Acute coronary syndrome Based on ECG and cardiac enzymes, ACS is classified into: STEMI: ST elevation, elevated cardiac enzymes NSTEMI: ST depression, T-wave inversion, elevated cardiac enzymes Unstable Angina: Non specific EKG changes, normal cardiac enzymes
Slide 5 - Unstable Angina Occurs at rest and prolonged, usually lasting >20 minutes New onset angina that limits activity Increasing angina: Pain that occurs more frequently, lasts longer periods or is increasingly limiting the patients activity
Slide 6 - EKG STEMI: Q waves , ST elevations, hyper acute T waves; followed by T wave inversions. Clinically significant ST segment elevations: > than 1 mm (0.1 mV) in at least two anatomical contiguous leads or 2 mm (0.2 mV) in two contiguous precordial leads (V2 and V3) Note: LBBB and pacemakers can interfere with diagnosis of MI on EKG
Slide 7 - EKG NSTEMI: ST depressions (0.5 mm at least) or T wave inversions ( 1.0 mm at least) without Q waves in 2 contiguous leads with prominent R wave or R/S ratio >1. Isolated T wave inversions: can correlate with increased risk for MI may represent Wellen’s syndrome: critical LAD stenosis >2mm inversions in anterior precordial leads Unstable Angina: May present with nonspecific or transient ST segment depressions or elevations
Slide 8 - Cardiac Enzymes Troponin is primarily used for diagnosing MI because it has good sensitivity and specificity. CK-MB is more useful in certain situations such as post reperfusion MI or if troponin test is not available Other conditions can cause elevation in troponin such as renal failure or heart failure The increasing troponin trend is the important thing to look for in diagnosing MI. Order Troponin together with ECG when doing serial testing to rule out ACS.
Slide 9 - Risk Stratification: TIMI score NSTEMI or unstable angina are risk stratified: Age>=65 >= 3 CAD risk factors: HTN, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, smoker, family hx of early MI Documented CAD with >=50% stenosis ST segment deviation ≥ 2 aginal episodes in past 24 hours Aspirin use in the past week (marker for more severe case) Elevation of cardiac enzymes Stratify risk based on number of variables Risk: 0-2: Low 3-4: Intermediate 5-7: High risk
Slide 10 - NSTEMI & Unstable Angina Management NSTEMI or EKG changes suggest ischemia with high risk: Telemetry Aspirin Beta blocker Nitrates Heparin (UFH or LMWH) ACE-I/ARB Statin Consider GP IIb/IIIa inhibitor and clopidogrel EKG normal or non-specific changes with intermediate or low risk: Telemetry Rule out ACS with 3 sets of troponin, EKG Consider pre-discharge stress test
Slide 11 - STEMI Management STEMI patients usually go straight to the cath lab from the ED. Goal: door to balloon 90 minutes. Initial management for STEMI: Cardiac monitor Supplemental O2 Nitrates* Beta blocker Morphine Clopidogrel Aspirin Good IV access Call cardiology fellow!
Slide 12 - Case 60 year old male with history of DM2 for 20 years, HTN, HLD who presented to the ED with 4 hour onset of chest pain which was described as in the anterior chest without radiation. The pain seemed to improve when he sits down and worsening when he walked upstairs. VS: T 36.9, HR: 95, BP: 84/56, RR 22, O2 sat. 99% RA. ECGs are shown as followed
