REBEL Core Cast 113.0 – ACS Therapies and Management

Take Home Points:

  • All STEMIs should be loaded with dual antiplatelet therapy. Prasugrel (Effient) is avoided as there is an increase in bleeding complications if the patient requires a CABG.

  • NSTEMI cases can be challenging to manage. Consult Cardiology early and use all available data.

  • The appropriate medical treatment for ACS patients is as important as PCI.

  • POCUS is a very valuable tool for ACS patients in the ED.

  • Clinical presentation¬† trumps all other data. Trust your gut!
