Lecture: Acute Coronary Syndromes, Part (Overview and Non-STE-ACS) and Part 2 (STEMI)

Here is a pdf of all the slides (parts I and 2).
This contains some extra slides which were "hidden" in the presentation.

Part 1: Overview and Non-ST Elevation ACS

Part 2: ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction


  1. Hello Dr. Smith

    Truly amazing and informative lectures. I was looking forward to the power point PDF which is currently not working. Hopefully it will be fix soon. I am a great fan of yours. Certainly this lecture like the rest of your lectures requires multiple hearing and this is my day one.

    Thank you

    Steve, extremely helpful ; very neatly and clearly presented. it is interesting. we rarely use ticagrelor in our shop. we need to transfer all our "hearts" to a nearby center, and the FMC to PCI is mostly greater than 90 minutes, so we give TNK. i haven't used IV plavix for years. i wonder if that is regional, or have i been providing less than optimal care?
    however, parts I and II of your lecture is extraordinarily helpful
    thank you

    1. Tom,
      I don't think there is IV Plavix. The recommendation is to give po plavix with lytics. And if the patient will then go to PCI, he/she will need plavix or ticagrelor, and only plavix is proven safe with lytics (though probably both are)

  5. Thanks a lot for a wonderful summary of current guidelines!! Amazing presentation!! Very helpful to me.

  6. Astonishing. Needs to hear this lecture a number of times to absorb the amazing amount of data.

  7. Dr Smith,

    Thank you very much for these amazing and highly informative lectures. I am a Cardiology fellow and your ECG lectures made me feel that now I could do justice to my role as a fellow when reviewing patients. Your ECG blogs are amazing as ever and please continue your great work.

    Best Wishes
