In first image RR variable with absent p waves s/o AF, ST segment coving with q waves (evolved MI) in avr, v1 with reciprocal st sagging in inferolateral leads. If chest pain persists even after q waves have appeared on ecg you can go for thrombolysis. Thank you sirji.

Cardiac markers CK MB nd trop t trop I levels helps to distinguish non STMI MI From unstable angina. Better to go wth CM Also adv.NTpro BNP

Go for ideally CAG If not possible in Golden hours then thrombolysis is option

You are on write line of management but case should be followed up by going forPCI after CAG. Coronary thrombosis can be looked for. Regular monitoring and constant evaluation required.

Well done .When you thrombolyse it takes care of unstable angina .

Thrombolysis with stk or reteplage

AV blocks Old inferior block MI Verntricular fibrilation Pericarditis Hyperkalemia

Rule out Coronarythrombosis with Trponin study. IV Potasium should be taken care of. It seems to be coronary artery disease.

CARDIAC enzymes can be the guide. If serial TROPONIN is negative, this presentation can be ACS ,unstable angina. If cardiac enzymes are elevated it can be STEMI or NON STEMI. ECG show AF with FVR , rate related Inferior wall and Antero lateral wall ischemia / OR NONSTEMI in that area . Thrombolysis can be based on troponin levels. Anyway this patient will require urgent ANGIO and STENTING, even though the final ECG is near normal. Diabetes should be controlled with insulin, HYPOKALEMIA should be corrected, renal functions watched .

I AM OF OPINION HE SHOULD GO FOR CAG FOLLOWED BY PCI

Thanks Sir for valuable comments. PCI facilities are available twice in a week as cardiologist visit on that days . So planning it on Friday.
