Classic Q wave myocardial infarction. Aggressive, early intervention has dramatic results.

Abstract

One of the most dramatic interventions in modern medicine is the treatment of acute myocardial infarction. The sustained occlusion that occurs with Q wave infarction can result in extensive damage unless coronary flow is restored early. Dr Vacek discusses the rapid response to acute Q wave infarction, including diagnostic techniques, reperfusion, patient monitoring, and ongoing medical therapy.
