- In acute myocardial infarction give without delay the following three remedies: R67, R55, R2
- Alternate the 3 remedies every 5-10 minutes to begin with depending on severity of case. Thereafter slowly increase the intervals between administration of the alternating remedies to ½ to 1 to 2 hourly
- As patient improves and there is no further shock give R3 and alternate with R2 in order to prevent permanent damage to the myocardium. In circulatory disturbances during menopause give R10
