Invasive versus conservative strategy in patients aged 80 years or older with non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction or unstable angina pectoris (After Eighty study): an open-label randomised controlled trial, The Lancet, Volume 387, No. 10023, p1057–1065, 12 March 2016

Interpretation: In patients aged 80 years or more with NSTEMI or unstable angina, an invasive strategy is superior to a conservative strategy in the reduction of composite events. Efficacy of the invasive strategy was diluted with increasing age (after adjustment for creatinine and effect modification). The two strategies did not differ in terms of bleeding complication

Oxygen Therapy in Patients with Acute Myocardial Infarction: A Systemic Review and Meta-Analysis. Am J Med. 2018 Jun;131(6):693-701. doi: 10.1016/j.amjmed.2017.12.027. Epub 2018 Mar 5.

CONCLUSIONS: This meta-analysis confirms the lack of benefit of routine oxygen therapy in patients with acute myocardial infarction with normal oxygen saturation levels.
