Reperfusion Therapy for Acute Myocardial Infarction provides a comprehensive review of reperfusion therapy for ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Professor Eric R. Bates and his international team of contributors examine current and future reperfusion therapies for STEMI, in conjunction with the latest clinical trials and guidelines, to bring the most in-depth and thorough review of management strategies for these patients. This source addresses key developments that can reduce logistical barriers, improve times-to-treatment, and ensure that appropriate medications are administered in patient care.
