Randomized Trial Data
The safety and effectiveness of magnesium in the management of STEMI patients was evaluated in a series of 15 studies enrolling 68,684 patients between 1980 and 2002. The randomized data does not support the routine administration of magnesium to patients with ST elevation MI.

|Class III (Harm)|
|"1. In the absence of documented electrolyte deficits or torsade de pointes type VT, routine intravenous magnesium should not be administered to STEMI patients at any level of risk. (Level of Evidence: A)"|
|"1. It is reasonable that documented magnesium deficits be corrected, especially in patients receiving diuretics before the onset of STEMI. (Level of Evidence: C)"|
|"2. It is reasonable that episodes of torsade de pointes type VT associated with a prolonged QT interval be treated with 1 to 2 grams of magnesium administered as an IV bolus over 5 minutes. (Level of Evidence: C)"|
