Course Overview:
An acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) continues to be a significant health problem in the United States and throughout the world. Despite this, there has been a steady decline in the mortality rate from STEMI over the last several decades.   A STEMI is a high-risk condition in which survival and other clinical outcomes are significantly impacted by reducing the time from vessel occlusion to coronary blood flow restoration. Thus, it is crucial for health care providers to educate their patients in recognizing and identifying early symptoms of a STEMI to improve outcomes and mortality.
