Colchicine Reduces MI and Revascularization in Patients with Established Coronary Artery Disease [POEMs]

Colchicine, 0.5 mg daily, significantly reduces the risk of myocardial infarction and ischemia-driven revascularization.

Beta Blockers for Suspected or Diagnosed Acute Myocardial Infarction [Cochrane for Clinicians]

Compared with placebo, beta-blocker use in patients with acute MI reduces short-term (less than three months) risk of MI and long-term (more than three months) risk of cardiovascular mortality and all-cause mortality.

Daily Colchicine Post-MI Reduces Strokes and Recurrent Hospitalizations for Angina [POEMs]

Daily colchicine after MI reduces cardiovascular events, specifically strokes and hospitalizations for angina. It is inexpensive and well-tolerated and should be considered for patients with recent MIs who are already using guideline-directed therapy.

Supplemental Oxygen Therapy for Nonhypoxemic Patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome [FPIN's Clinical Inquiries]

No conclusive evidence demonstrates that routine use of supplemental oxygen therapy is associated with clinical benefit or harm in nonhypoxemic patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI).

Depression After ACS Events: AAFP Releases Updated Guidelines [Practice Guidelines]

The American Academy of Family Physicians has released a guideline focusing on depression in adults within three months of an ACS event (unstable angina or myocardial infarction). The guideline is based on a systematic review of randomized controlled trials and observational studies and covers screening and treatment.

Predictors of Acute Myocardial Infarction [FPIN's Help Desk Answers]

The most useful element for ruling in acute MI is chest pain with radiation to both arms, followed by radiation to the right arm. The most useful elements for ruling out acute MI are pleuritic chest pain, sharp pain, and pain reproduced by palpation.

Rapid Protocols to Rule out Myocardial Infarction [Point-of-Care Guides]

Cardiac troponin T and I are released into the bloodstream when cardiac muscle is damaged. Cardiac troponin tests have been available for decades and are the preferred biomarkers for the diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). However, until recently, they lacked sensitivity in the first few hours following an acute myocardial injury.

Post-Myocardial Infarction Beta Blockers Do Not Decrease Mortality [POEMs]

Although recommended by guidelines and used as a so-called quality indicator of hospital care, the use of beta blockers following myocardial infarction, when combined with optimal acute and chronic treatment, does not provide a further survival benefit.
