Course Overview:
Heart Disease is the leading cause of death in adults in the United States. Recent advances in the treatment of acute myocardial infarction have significantly reduced rates of morbidity and mortality. However, these treatments are time-sensitive and necessitate rapid initiation for desirable outcomes.
