Supplemental Oxygen in ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction

Nehme et al assess the effect of supplemental oxygen within the first 12 hours of ST elevation myocardial infarction on myocardial injury (as assessed by cardiac troponin and creatine kinase). This was a randomized clinical trial three levels of supplemental oxygen versus no oxygen.  The authors conclude that supplemental oxygen in the first 12 hours of STEMI was associated with increased myocardial injury. This has clinically meaningful implications.
