Context Decision making about thrombolysis in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) can be difficult. The Thrombolytic Predictive Instrument (TPI) estimates the risk for death and hemorrhage with and without thrombolysis. Its effect on patient care is unknown. Contribution This randomized trial of the TPI in emergency departments showed that printing TPI predictions on the admission electrocardiogram increased the frequency of reperfusion for inferior AMI but not anterior AMI. The effect of the TPI… CONTINUE READING
