All patients arriving at hospital with chest pain suggestive of myocardial ischemia require an immediate 12-lead ECG and medical assessment. Management will depend on the type of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) diagnosed. Fast Facts: Acute Coronary Syndromes is an international evidence-based primer that focuses on optimizing patient outcomes via accurate initial diagnosis, appropriate risk stratification and proper therapeutic decision-making in line with both American and European management guidelines. This refreshingly readable handbook simplifies the complexities involved in the care of patients with ACS by:
In this fast-changing field it is difficult for healthcare professionals to remain current and virtually impossible to fully understand all of the subtle nuances of the available clinical trial data. This comprehensive handbook is therefore the essential resource for all healthcare professionals looking for up-to-date, easy-to read information that will assist best practice in the identification and management of all patients with ACS.
"... a quick and easy read, while presenting comprehensive and up-to-date information ... Particularly well thought out and explained chapters include diagnosis, risk stratification, decision making, and unstable angina/NSTEMI ... the practicality for use as a pocket sized reference guide for ACS management is clearly evident. Key points are clustered appropriately and intended for easy recall. Diagrams are easily understandable and maintain a level of simplicity suitable for those in various levels of training. Most importantly the information is up-to-date and takes into consideration those guidelines that drive our daily practice."
