A case is presented to demonstrate that tocolysis by beta adrenergic stimulation can be complicated by metabolic myocardial infarction. The possible role of pathophysiologic and pharmacologic facts is discussed, but additional clinical features involved in this particular case may be partly responsible for the above-mentioned complication. Finally, some… (More)
The treatment of unstable angina pectoris should take into account self-regulation, the possibilities for improved oxygen transport, and a reduction of myocardial oxygen requirement. It consists primarily of drug therapy (nitrates, Ca-antagonists, amiodarone, beta-blockers). Secondarily, coronarography is performed with a view to surgical therapy.
Transthoracic echocardiography is an easily accessible, non-invasive imaging procedure for evaluation and follow-up of critically ill patients. It is particularly helpful in evaluating patients with thoracic pain, low-output syndrome or heart murmur, and has prognostic value in acute myocardial infarction. It makes a diagnostic contribution in 60 to 90% of… (More)
