Updated SCGH ED STEMI Protocol 09/2017

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.
