Hi,
Thanks for writing to us.
The history that you have provided seems like typical case of an inferior Myocardial infarction and best way forward would be to go ahead with Primary angioplasty (after having given some premedication). If there is no primary PCI facility, we can also consider lysis. However if the diagnosis in doubt, then further evaluation with cardiac enzymes and Echocardiogram would be needed.
Hope that helps
Let me know if you have any more questions

Hi
Thanks for writing back.
I would like to know that the BP has gone down to 95/50mmHg from what initial level. If presentation BP is same than the management remains same as described in the initial reply. If his BP has been much higher and suddenly drops to this level than we need repeat ECG and Echo to look for any fresh changes. Than depending on LV (left ventricular) filling pressure and Killips class we can either give fluids or inotropes;. Also need to expedite the process of Primary angioplasty
Hope that helps

Answered by Dr. Prabhakar C Koregol 34 minutes later
I will need more clinical information to answer this query. Details about lung congestion; LV function; the treatment that is currently on; etc., will be needed. Discuss with the treating doctor.

I will be available for assistance if you need it.

lfv function 85 percent
bp 100/60 pulse 80.
 
 
Answered by Dr. Prabhakar C Koregol 20 hours later
LF EF 80% doesn't seem correct for the clinical scenario you have discussed. However with BP and pulse you mentioned, if he is comfortable and on minimal medicines he can continue to be on the same.
