thrombolytic therapy contraindicated embolic phenomenon, thoracic aortic dissection
criteria for MI dx (need 2/3) sx, EKG, serum cardiac markers
detects MI w/in 24hrs - 5 days Tc-pyrophosphate scan
scan performed 24hrs after injection In-antimyosin scan
can detect acute MI, unstable angina, active myocarditis, cardiac transplant rejection In-antimyosin scan
detects both acute and chronic MI late galolidium enhancement CMR
first to inc w/acute MI myoglobin
second to inc w/acute MI total CK and troponin
inc several days after acute MI LDH
dec by beta blockers, anti-HTN drugs, digoxin, & analgesics double product (SV and HR)
