TRAPID-AMI Study

CRIT CLOUD
Crit Loud - March 15, 2019

  • It's time to get rid of the classical image of CP radiating only into the left arm. While this might still be the predominant complaint at presentation, it's the right sided shoulder/ arm pain we should keep a close eye on!
  • Chest pain radiating to the right shoulder/ arm is more predicitive of myocardial infarction than left sided chest pain
  • And remember: a positive Troponin alone does not fullfill the diagnostic criteria of AMI!
