    Nitrates to Patient with Aortic Stenosis

    Thanks for the explanation, as a new nurse it really helps to understand why we do and don't do certain things. I just had another patient last night with a pericarial effusion and the cardiologist wrote an order to d/c all nitrates- this must be a preload issue as well...right?
  2. I recently had a cardiologist tell me that if I gave a SL nitro to a patient with ACS and a history of severe aortic stenosis that I would have killed the patient! Can anyone explain this to me.

    What do you consider a positive troponin?

    I work on a cardiac unit with a positive troponin >0.1.
