At the time of curation, patient was active, he only had complaints of mild breathlesness, and dry cough.

ANAMNESIS MORBI On 22nd October patient felt an acute moderate pain in the chest, the pain radiated to his left arm. Since about 2 days prior to the pain attack patient had been having general weakness and a compression feeling in the chest. On 22 nd October (after the pain attack) patient went to polyclinic, which had refered him to the regional hospital. Patient came to hospital on 23rd of Octoberr, during which he had tachycardia (110 beat/min) and his blood pressure was 160/90. On the same visit he was hospitalised.

ANAMNESIS VITAE Patient did not have any significant disease during his childhood except for one episode of pneumonia attack, which was treated and he fully recovered. As a child he gained normal physical and mental development. He’s never suffered from any venereal disease like syphilis, gonorrhea, or any other chronic disease like tuberculosis or viral hepatitis. He has not undergone any surgical procedure. Patient had smoked for 50 years. He is to have Arterial Hypertension since 1970 (presently usual BP at around 160/90). And 3 years ago he was diagnosed with Diabetes type 2 (presently he’s on Glibenclamide 5mg - 2times/day)

He was hospitalized in the year 2000 with the complaints of pain in the region of heart and difficulty breathing, as then he was diagnosed for Ischemic Heart Disease Left ventricular Myocardial Infarction. After treatment he was well and working till he was admitted for DM in 2005. After that he again started working and on 23 October 2010 he was admitted due to severe retrosternal pain and chest compression.

Accompanying disease:


Diabetes Mellitus


Heart insufficiency II A stage

COMPLEX TREATMENT REQIURED FOR MYOCARDIAL INFARTION GENERAL MEASURES Cardiac care unit monitoring should be instituted as soon as possible. Patients without complications can be transferred to a telemetry unit after 24–48 hours. Low-flow oxygen therapy (2–4 L/min) should be given if oxygen saturation is reduced. To prevent straining at stool and maintenance of normal bowel function give laxatives. Continued pain maybe relieved by7 administration of nitroglycerine, initially sublingually followed by continuous IV drip if needed. During initial days of hospitalization patient can be on catheterized urination. Activity should initially be limited to bed rest but can be advanced within 24 hours. Progressive ambulation should be started after 24–72 hours if tolerated. For patients without complications, discharge by day 4 appears to be appropriate.

ANTIPLATELET THERAPY Patients with definite or suspected myocardial infarction should receive aspirin at a dose of 162 mg or 325 mg at once regardless of whether thrombolytic therapy is being considered or the patient has been taking aspirin. Chewable aspirin provides more rapid blood levels. Patients with a definite aspirin allergy should be treated with clopidogrel; a 300 mg loading dose will result in faster onset of action than the standard 75 mg dose.

THROMBOLYTIC THERAPY Thrombolytic therapy is very important in the first few minutes and hours after onset of MI. It reduces mortality and limits infarct size in patients with acute myocardial infarction associated with ST segment elevation •

Streptokinase is not commonly used for treatment of acute myocardial infarction since it is less effective at opening occuluded arteries and less effective at reducing mortality. It is non-fibrin-specific, causes depletion of circulating fibrinogen.

Alteplase is a naturally occurring plasminogen activator that is modestly fibrin specific, resulting in about a 50% reduction in circulating fibrinogen.


After completion of the thrombolytic infusion, aspirin should be continued. Anticoagulation with intravenous heparin (initial dose of 60 units/kg bolus to a maximum of 4000 units, followed by an infusion of 12 units/kg/min to a maximum of 1000 units, then adjusted to maintain an activated partial thromboplastin time [aPTT] of 50–75 seconds beginning with an aPTT drawn 3 hours after thrombolytic) is continued for at least 24 hours after alteplase, reteplase, or tenecteplase but is optional in patients receiving streptokinase. With tenecteplase, enoxaparin, a 30 mg intravenous bolus, followed by 1 mg/kg every 12 hours, resulted in a lower incidence of the composite of death, myocardial infarction, refractory ischemia, and disabling stroke, but bleeding rates appear to be increased in the elderly. For all patients with acute myocardial infarction treated with intensive antithrombotic therapy, prophylactic treatment with antacids and an H 2-blocker is advisable. β-ADRENERGIC BLOCKING AGENTS Although trials have shown modest short-term benefit from intravenous β-blockers, such as atenolol, given immediately after acute myocardial infarction, it has not been clear that this provides a major advantage over simply beginning an oral β-blocker. The Chinese COMMIT/CCS-2 trial involving 45,000 patients found no overall benefit to intravenous followed by oral metoprolol; the aggressive dosing (three 5 mg intravenous boluses followed by 200 mg/d orally) appeared to prevent reinfarction at the cost of increasing shock in patients presenting with heart failure. Thus, β-blockade should be avoided in patients with decompensated heart failure, decompensated asthma, or high degrees of AV block.

ANGIOTENSIN-CONVERTING ENZYME INHIBITORS ACE inhibitor therapy by the use of drugs such as Captopril, Enalapril, Ramipril, benefits greatest, to patients with low ejection fractions, large infarctions, or clinical evidence of heart failure. Because substantial amounts of the survival benefit occur on the first day, ACE inhibitor treatment should be commenced early in patients without hypotension, especially patients with large or anterior myocardial infarction.

ANGIOTENSIN RECEPTOR BLOCKERS Although there has been inconsistency in the effects of different angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) on mortality for patients post-myocardial infarction with heart failure and/or LV dysfunction, the VALIANT trial showed that valsartan 160 mg twice a day is equivalent to captopril in reducing mortality. Thus, valsartan should be used for all patients with ACE inhibitor intolerance, and is a reasonable, albeit more expensive, alternative to captopril. The combination of captopril and valsartan (at reduced dose) was no better than either agent alone and resulted in more side effects.


An initial attempt should be made to relieve pain with sublingual nitroglycerin. However, if no response occurs after two or three tablets, intravenous opioids provide the most rapid and effective analgesia and may also reduce pulmonary congestion. Morphine sulfate, 4–8 mg, or meperidine, 50–75 mg, should be given. Subsequent small doses can be given every 15 minutes until pain abates.

CALCIUM CHANNEL BLOCKERS Calcium channel blockers such as Amlodipine, niphedipine, verapamil acts by relaxing the smooth muscle in the arterial wall, decreasing peripheral resistance and hence reducing blood pressure; in angina it increases blood flow to the heart muscle. Long-acting calcium channel blockers should generally be reserved for management of hypertension or ischemia as secondor third-line drugs after β-blockers and nitrates.
