cause of MI?
plaque builup narrowing arteries => a broken piece goes to smaller vessel to lodge => block O2 supply => ischemic
what meds for MI?
- 1) thrombolytic (reteplase) = dissolve clot by activating plasminogen to bind to fibrin = effective w/in 30 minutes and not later 12 hrs
- 2) antiplatelet = aspirin
- 3) anticoagulant = heparin; glycoprotein IIb/IIIa, ADP receptor blocker

what and cause of HF?
- -inability of ventricle to pump enough blood for body's demand
- -cause = weakened muscle.
- - can be both, but normally left ventricle
- -decreased contractility => decreased CO =>
- 1) increased preload => lung congestion
- 2) decreased bp =>
- a- increased demand => increased rate => increased workload
- b-decreased flow to kidneys => ADH & renin pathway activated => Na/water retention => increased blood volume => increased bp => increased afterload => increased work

3 important factors of HF?
- 1) preload (stretch)
- 2) contractility (snap back)
- 3) afterload (force of LV to pump against)
action of digoxin?
1) inhibit Na& K tapse => release Ca => increase force of contraction = increased CO (positive inotropic effect # BAB = negative) => increased UOP => relieve lung congestion & peripheral edema
2)suppress SA & slow conduction AV (watch serious SE = excessive slow heart rate)
SE of digoxin?
