Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Dilatrend is a drug used mainly in treatment of heart failure. It is not indicated when a person get's heart attack to get relief. The medicine for that will be Sublingual Nitroglycerine tablet. Morphine may be administered for pain relief as well at a Hospital. Also Aspirin 160-325mg will be needed to be chewed in mouth This is a protocol followed in most Hospitals for initial treatment of heart attack.

hello and welcome to health care magic .
heart attack or myocardial infarction has standard treatment , one of the component is the use of dilatrend , if the patient is not in a state of cardiogenic shock .
use of asprin , thrombolytics( that dissolve the clot that caused heart attack) , heparin and statins ( to lower the cholesterol , which is risk factor for heart attack).
