Estimating outcomes of astronauts with myocardial infarction in exploration class space missions.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION We estimate likelihood of presenting rhythms and survival to hospital discharge outcome after acute cardiac ischemia with arrhythmia and/or myocardial infarction (AMI) during long-duration space missions (LDSM) using selected terrestrial cohorts in medical literature. Medical scenarios were risk-stratified by coronary artery calcium score (CAC… (More)
