Overview

Acute Cardiac Care: Community and Hospital Management of Myocardial Infarction

Heart attack is the most common cause of death in developed countries, and there is now clear evidence that early and appropriate treatment can significantly reduce this mortality. This practical book is essential for all those who treat patients experiencing acute chest pain syndromes. The book begins with an overview of the epidemiology and pathology of myocardial infarction, and a consideration of risk reduction. It covers the early management of acute chest pain and cardiac arrest in the community, and discusses the rationale behind providing effective community care. It then addresses hospital care, including investigation, diagnosis, and management of myocardial infarction, and possible complications. There is a section dealing with practical procedures such as cardioversion and temporary pacing, and a chapter describing the commonly used cardiac drugs. Finally, there is a discussion of the recovery phase and rehabilitation and surveillance in the community.
