Show Notes

A critical component to post-arrest care for the patient with ROSC following out-of-hospital cardiac arrest is early coronary angiography. Current guidelines recommend immediate cardiac angiography for patients with evidence of a STEMI on their post-arrest ECG. For the more common scenario of non-diagnostic ECGs, the role of early coronary angiography remains uncertain. In this podcast, superstar Amal Mattu joins us to discuss an article just published in the New England Journal of Medicine on early coronary angiography for patients without evidence of STEMI following ROSC.
