The ALS PCS 4.5 STEMI directive follows the BLS V3.0.1 criteria and no longer has a pulse rate of <50 as a contraindication for bypass. Does this mean a bradycardic patient with a pulse in the 40’s can now be transported on a STEMI bypass? In the past medics where taught differing regions would have slightly different STEMI receiving acceptance criteria. Are there any considerations we as medics should consider for STEMI receiving hospitals in our governing region?
