  10. Chest Pain Protocol • General • Assess ABCs • IV NSS, oxygen, pulse oximetry and ECG monitor • Vital signs • Obtain a severity value of chest pain (1 to 10) • Obtain and interpret 12 Lead ECG if patient condition permits • Do not delay transport for 12 Lead ECG. Obtain ECG during transport and transmit to receiving hospital if possible. Communicate your impression of ECG during report.

  11. Chest Pain Protocol • Medications • Aspirin 324 mg PO - chew and swallow • NTG 0.4 mg SL (if SBP >90 mmHg and DBP >50 mmHg) If no relief, may repeat NTG every 3-5 minutes up to a total of 4 doses. • Morphine Sulfate 2-5 mg IV • Treat dysrhythmias as appropriate • IV fluid – 300 ml NSS if SBP drops <90mmHg • Reassess lung sounds and vital signs • Dopamine if SBP < 90 mmHg, if patient refractory to fluid challenge (s) or evidence of pulmonary edema
