Inferior wall MI treatment mnemonic

Inferior wall MI is different than other MIs . It is associated with sinus bradycardias and AV block.

To remember the treatment, you can use this mnemonic:

Inferior wall MI patients need to be PACED ASaP before Inteventions:
A: IV Atropine
S: IV Saline
P: temporary Pacing (transcutaenous then transvenous) if remains symptomatic after atropine
PACED: Just to remind you that pacing is the next step if sinus bradycardia or high degree symptomatic AV block occurs.

Interventions: PCI

Good luck :)
