Utilization of POCUS & ECG to improve prehospital detection of Acute MI

 

Recorded: Oct 14, 2021 

 

 

Speakers: Tyler Christifulli

 

Objectives:

  • Identify cardiac territories obtained from a parasternal short axis view
  • Discuss areas in ECG interpretation that could be augmented with POCUS
  • Analyze workflow and logistics of utilizing both ECG and ultrasound in cardiac assessment

 

Description:

Paramedics are taught to detect myocardial infarctions (MI) by obtaining and interpreting a 12 lead ECG. With under half of all MI’s presenting with ST elevation on a 12 lead ECG, some will go undetected by EMS. Can ultrasound improve the sensitivity of detecting the MI’s that aren’t obvious on ECG? Join Tyler Christifulli as he discusses this topic and provides some thought experiments for the future of EMS.
