STEMI Management

ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI) is a severe and potentially life-threatening form of heart attack caused by a complete blockage of a coronary artery, usually due to a blood clot. It occurs when the blood supply to a portion of the heart muscle is suddenly cut off, leading to damage to the heart muscle if not promptly treated. STEMI is characterized by specific changes on an electrocardiogram (ECG), particularly elevation of the ST segment, which indicates a prolonged period of inadequate blood flow. Immediate medical intervention, often involving procedures such as angioplasty and stent placement to restore blood flow, is crucial to minimize heart damage and improve patient outcomes. Rapid recognition of symptoms such as chest pain or discomfort, shortness of breath, and nausea, followed by timely medical attention, is vital in managing STEMI effectively.
