AHA 2015 Update For CPR and ECC: ACS

This deals with prehospital and emergency care. For in-hospital management please refer to this link http://circ.ahajournals.org/content/127/4/529

The main points are

  • PCI should be preferred if it’s available. If fibrinolysis is administered, routine angio within 24 hours is reasonable alternative. (in line with the in-hospital management algorithm)
  • Use of troponin + risk stratification scores to identify patients who can be discharged.
