* Sinus Bradycardia
 #850294

  There are two separate questions in UW about sinus bradycardia. One says if pt is unstable, go ahead and do transvenous cardiac pacing. If stable use atropine IV.

The other questions says, the sinus bradycardia in inf wall MI is transiant and in the question pt is clearly unstable with HR of 45 and they are giving him Atropine IV instead of cardiac pacing.

Is there a difference between the management when it is inf wall MI vs any other form of sinus bradycardia that I m missing?

  There's no difference in the managemnet of the bradycardia relative to the underlying cause. The management scheme should be the same. If patient's is unstable, go ahead and use all you can. give atropine while you arrange for the transcutaneous pacer or transvenous pacer.
