List options for monitoring.
Continuous cardiac monitoring
Serial 12-lead ECG every 15–30 minutes for the first hour
Serial serum troponin measurement (every 1–6 hours)
List supportive measures.
Oxygen therapy for patients with:
SpO2 < 90%
Intravenous fluids (e.g., normal saline)
Consider for inferior myocardial infarction causing RV dysfunction
Increasing the preload optimizes left and right ventricular filling and reduces hemodynamic instability.
Loop diuretic (e.g., furosemide): consider for patients with pulmonary edema, acute heart failure
