Reuters Health - 15/03/2022 -Among emergency department patients with acute chest discomfort who were found to have Type 2 myocardial infarction (T2MI), tachycardia and hypertension were responsible in two thirds of the cases, a new study found. The findings were drawn from 6,253 unselected patients who presented to emergency departments in five European countries with chest discomfort. Type 1 myocardial infarction (T1MI) was diagnosed in 16.4% of the patients, with T2MI diagnosed in 4%. Compared to the T1MI group, the T2MI had a lower proportion of current smokers (20% vs 26%) and a lower rate of hypercholesterolemia (53% vs 61%) but a higher proportion of females (36% vs 26%), researchers reported in JAMA Cardiology. There was no significant difference between T2MI and T1MI patients, respectively, in rates of underlying coronary artery disease (41% vs 40%), previous MI (27% vs 30%) or previous revascularization (31% vs 32%).
