ACS - Sorry haba ha. Kung wala ng time, basahin nio na lang Sample order chart, CSAP part, STEMI part, basically lahat. HAHAHA. Loko lang. Alam nio naman na to. Reviewer ko kasi talaga to inayos ko lang hehe.


- obstruction of the coronary arteries usually the epicardial arteries by atheromatous plaque.

- Risk factors: family history of premature coronary artery disease, cigarette smoking, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, a sedentary lifestyle, and obesity.

- Anginal “equivalents” (i.e.,dyspnea, faintness, fatigue, and eructations) are common particularly in the elderly.

Patients with chronic coronary artery disease commonly present with Chronic Stable Angina Pectoris (CSAP)


Clinical manifestations:

Angina in a man > 50 years old or woman >60 years of age who complains of episodes of chest discomfort - Described as heaviness, pressure, squeezing, smothering or choking

- Cresecendo-decrescendo in nature

- Usually lasts 2-5 minutes

- Associated with physical exertion or stress

- Radiation to either or both shoulders/arms (especially

the ulnar surfaces of the forearm and hand)

- Can also arise in or radiate to the back, interscapular

region, root of neck, jaw or teeth, or epigastrum, and does not radiate to the trapezius muscles; - Exertional angina typically is relieved in 1-5 min by slowing or ceasing activities and even more rapidly by rest and sublingual nitroglycerin

Physical Examination:

often normal in a patient with stable angina; may reveal other conditions associated with angina, such as valvular heart disease or hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy Other key findings to look for are: xanthelasma, xanthomas, earlobe crease, arcus senilis, retinal exudates, femoral bruit








Angina occurs with GREATER THAN ordinary physical activity


With ORDINARY physical activity


With LESS THAN ordinary physical activity





Rule Out


Burning character of pain Not related to food intake yung ACS



Localized tenderness


Aortic Dissection


Tearing type of pain, radiating to the back

Pulmonary Embolism

Sudden onset


Hypotension? (unless inferior wall

STEMI) History of DVT before?




Cough, fever





always say…)









Pain is relieved by leaning forward or sitting up Pericardial friction rub on PE


History of panic attacks, alam na alam nio na to from psych rotation, hallucinations, delusions, or recent traumatic events


Laboratory Exams:

- Urinalysis (for evidence of DM and renal disease)

- Lipid Profile

- HbA1C

- Crea, Hematocrit

- Thyroid function test (if there’s indication)

Chest xray

- May show cardiac enlargement, ventricular aneurysm, signs of HF. These support diagnosis of IHD


- May be normal at rest or show ST-T wave changes, LV hypertrophy (S in V1 + R in V5/6 = >35 mm or R in aVL> 11 mm based on Sokolow-Lyon Criteria),

Stress Testing

- Involves recording the 12 L ECG before, during and after exercise; the treadmill exercise test (TET) is recommended as the initial test of choice to diagnose CAD and evaluate prognosis

- Stress imaging test (stress myocardial radionuclide perfusion imaging) are strongly recommended as the diagnostic and prognostic tests of choice in patients with resting ECG abnormalities, patients unable to exercise, and patients with previous revascularization (PCI or CABG).

2D echo

- Recommended in patients with clinically detected murmurs, history and ECG changes of prior MI and signs or symptoms of heart failure; assess for chest wall motion abnormalities, EF, presence of thrombus

Coronary angiography indications:

- Patients with chest discomfort suggestive of angina pectoris but a negative or nondiagnostic stress test who require a definitive diagnosis

- Patients who have been admitted repeatedly to the hospital for a suspected acute coronary syndrome

- Patients with careers that involve the safety of others (e.g. pilots, police) who have questionable symptoms or suspicious or positive noninvasive tests

- Patients with aortic stenosis or hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and angina in whom the chest pain could be due to IH

- Male patients >45 years and females >55 years who are to undergo a cardiac operation such as valve replacement or repair and who may or may not have clinical evidence of myocardial ischemia.

- Patients after MI

- Patients with angina pectoris , regardless of severity in whom noninvasive testing indicates a high risk of coronary events (poor exercise performance or severe ischemia)

- Patients in whom coronarγ spasm or another nonatherosclerotic cause of myocardial ischemia


- Subtotal occlusive thrombus formation

Subendochardial ischemia

Clinical manifestations

- Angina pain which occurs at rest or with minimal exertion usually lasting >20 minutes

- Severe and new onset (within prior 4-6 weeks)

- Occurs with a crescendo pattern

Recommendations: initial triage of patients with chest pain

- Should be instructed to call the hospital and brought by ambulance - Administer ASA 162-135 mg chewed if suspecting ACS unless there’s CI

Trop I/T

- Most specific and sensitive markers of myocardial necrosis

- Values slightly above the upper reference limit (99th percentile of enzyme levels in a reference population) are already considered diagnostic of myocardial necrosis

reference limit, returns to normal after 7-10 days post-infarct

- Direct relationship between troponin levels and mortality


- Less specific for myocardial infarction

- Ratio of CKMB mass to CK activity ≥2.5 is suggestive of a myocardial source of the CK MB elevation

- Peaks at 12-24 hours up to 2-5 times the upper reference limit, returns to normal after 3-5 days post-infarct

- Shorter half-life allows for better detection of early reinfarction

ako grabe slow clap para sainyong lahat. J


di ko naman hinihingi. Mahal na mahal niyo

Sorry haba ah. Basahin nio na lang ung sample order chart tapos ung STEMI part.
