In this video, I review through four cases studies some of the key changes from the latest NICE guidance on acute coronary syndrome and how they correlate with the ESC guidance released earlier this year. Via these short cases, I illustrate how these changes are impacting clinical practice from a primary care perspective and highlight key points to remember.
Case 1: A fracture hip and a raised troponin
Was it a heart attack?
Case 2: 50-year-old with inferior ST elevation MI
What medications should they be on for the next year?
Case 3: A NSTEMI in a patient with known AF
What is the right antiplatelet / anticoagulation strategy?
Case 4: Chest pain, raised troponin and unobstructed coronary arteries
If it is not a "heart attack", then what is it doctor?
