Acute Coronary Syndrome

From Guide to YKHC Medical Practices

  • Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) has become increasingly common in our population and, as a result, our use of lytics has increased. If ACS is suspected, the order set for chest pain will be initiated. Cardiology is usually available at ANMC to review your EKG if you wish before initiating lytics. Most patients with ACS will be medevac’d to ANMC – possible exceptions include the elderly with multiple co-morbid conditions who are not eligible for operative intervention.
  • If you give lytics, the patient goes via medevac to ANMC.
