Benefit from this concise yet comprehensive manual, designed to improve the practice and process of STEMI interventions.
The STEMI “process” comprises of a series of actions; firstly the essential pre-hospital component, that deliver a STEMI patient to the cardiovascular laboratory efficiently, and then the “procedure” that results in rapid restoration of epicardial and myocardial perfusion to the infarcting heart. This process must be mastered and run seamlessly in order to provide optimal patient care and so improving door-to-balloon’ times (D2B) for STEMI patients is key to the success of the primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). This unique manual offers insight into developing, managing and maintaining STEMI interventions.
- Understand the varied pharmacological options available in managing STEMI patients, including newer anti-coagulants
- Improve your STEMI procedure technique through expert guidance, including stent choice, and other techniques such as trans-radial procedures
- Provides an overview of STEMI networks internationally and how to set up a STEMI program
- Reviews future perspectives for STEMI and the role of telemedicine for STEMI procedures
An interesting and valuable resource for cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, and those involved in the treatment of emergency cardiac patients.
