Metoprolol bringing big changes to emergency care for heart attacks
from By Archita Datta Majumdar
While basic training remains as the foundation for prehospital care, emergency medical technicians must upgrade their skills constantly, which includes knowledge about latest medications and techniques to prevent in-transit worsening of condition and even death. A recent study on the beta-blocker drug metoprolol and its ability to lessen damage from heart attacks promises major changes in emergency medicine. It will no longer just focus on sustaining the patients until they reach the hospital but on administering drugs that will help them in faster recovery all the way.
