Abstract

ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) remains an important cause of morbidity and mortality in industrialized nations, and advances are continually being made in this realm. From primary and secondary prevention to prehospital care, acute reperfusion therapy, adjunctive medical therapy, and management of complications, innovative treatments and systems are constantly reshaping the landscape of STEMI care. Increasingly, attention is being placed on the quality of acute MI care, with recognition that improvement in processes of care can directly lead to better patient outcomes. This chapter provides up-to-date knowledge of the pathophysiologic mechanisms, diagnostic modalities, therapeutic strategies, and potential complications of STEMI that health-care providers caring for these patients need to know.
