what is Coronary Artery Disease (CAD)? CAD is a broad term that includes stable angina pectoris and acute coronary syndromes. When blood flow through the coronary arteries is blocked, ischemia or infarction of the myocardium may result
what is ischemia? Ischemia occurs when insufficient oxygen is supplied to meet the requirements of the myocardium
what is infarction? Infarction (necrosis of the cells, cell death) occurs when sever ischemia is prolonged and irreversible damage to tissue results
Acute Coronary Syndromes? Angina-coronary ischemia-temporary imbalance between the coronary arteries ability to supply oxygen and the cardiac muscle’s demand for oxygen (no permanent damage to myocardial tissue).Stable Angina- predictable; fixed lesions.
Acute Coronary Syndromes? (contd') Unstable Angina- more intense, may occur at rest or with exertion and causes marked limitations of activity. Attacks increase in intensity and pain. Includes new-onset angina, variant (Prinzmental’s) angina, pre-infarction angina and crescendo angina
what should you look for on angina? Location Duration Quality Radiation Precipitating Factors Medication Relief
what is Myocardial Infarction? Irreversible necrosis due to an abrupt decrease or total cessation of coronary blood flow. ex:Plaque rupture,New thrombus in coronary artery
what are the process of infarction? Tissue Ischemia Hypoxemia Autonomic Nervous System Influences Metabolic Derangement Acid-base imbalances Hemodynamic disturbances Electrolyte disturbances Fiber stretch
the zone of infarction depends on what? Dependent on Three Factors: Collateral circulation Anaerobic metabolism Workload demands
what are the zone of infarction? Zone of Ischemia = T-wave inversion Zone of Injury = ST elevation Zone of Necrosis = Abnormal Q wave
what is the 1st type of infarction? 1. Subendocardial Infarction (non-Q wave)(multifocal areas of necrosis confined to the inner 1/3-1/2 of the left ventricular wall. These do not show the same evolution of changes seen in a transmural MI.)
what is the 2nd type of infarction? Transmural Infarction (Q wave) (involving the entire thickness of the left ventricular wall from endocardium to epicardium, usually the anterior free wall and posterior free wall and septum with extension into the RV wall in 15-30%).
what is the 2rd type of infarction? Physiologic response = ventricular remodeling (change in shape and size of L ventricle causing decrease L V F leading to HF)
Classification of MI by Location are?(1) Inferior: Abnormalities that appear in leads II, III, and F (called the inferior leads) indicate pathology on the inferior or diaphragmatic surface of the heart.
Classification of MI by Location are?(2) Lateral: Leads I, F, and V5-V6 are called lateral leads. Abnormality in these leads indicates pathology on the lateral, upper surface of the heart.
Classification of MI by Location are?(3) Anterior: Anterior pathology is seen in leads V1-V4, and often in lead I.
Classification of MI by Location are?(4) Posterior: Problems on the posterior surface of the heart are difficult to diagnose using the standard 12 ECG leads. The pathology may be seen as “reflected” through V1 and V2.
Classification of MI by Location are?(5) Combination: Abnormalities may not be limited to one of the four areas above. Inferolateral damage will show up in a combination of the inferior and lateral leads. Anterolateral damage will be seen in both the anterior and the lateral leads.
