Treatment of acute coronary syndrome: Part 2: ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction
Critical Care Medicine, 05/31/2012
Trost JC et al. – Patients with ST–segment elevation myocardial infarction benefit from prompt reperfusion therapy. Adjunctive antianginal, antiplatelet, antithrombotic, beta blocker, angiotensin–converting enzyme inhibitor, and statin agents minimize ongoing cardiac ischemia, prevent thrombus propagation, and reduce the risk of recurrent cardiovascular events.
