Use of nitroglycerin in patients with suspected ACS by EMS

Bernd W. Böttiger

Should nitroglycerin still be used by the emergency medical services in patients with suspected acute coronary syndrome?

Bernd W. Böttiger: In my country it is still in use by doctors and paramedics in the out-of-hospital setting. We recommend very careful use because we need to pay attention to whether the blood pressure is not too low after its administration.
