Cardiac Ischemia

ASA

Submission ID: 4

Question:

 

Just have a question about ASA in regards to administering the drug for new onset cardiac ischemic rhythms. An example would be a patient in 2nd degree type 2 heart block with no other cardiac ischemia signs/symptoms but has no history of a heart block before medics completed an assessment on the patient. With the possibility of the heart block being caused by ischemia can we give ASA ? Other cardiac rhythms that could be treated with ASA because of possible ischemia are BI/ Trigeminy PVCs/ runs of vtach/ 3RD degree block with no pervious history until medic assessment on scene.
