Here is the latest update of the SCGH ED STEMI Protocol 09/2017:
The major changes are:
- Age for inclusion increased to 85.
- ED no longer gives Ticagrelor – only for aspirin and heparin
- Unstable patients (defined in the document) remain in ED until reviewed by cardiology / ED / Anaesthesia – to ensure safe transfer
Note: This protocol can also be found on the SCGH ED Guidelines webpage under the Cardiology sub-heading.
