BACKGROUND So far, few data have been available on the incidence and outcome of patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI) requiring mechanical ventilation (MV). The aim of the study was to assess the clinical and prognostic impact of MV at short and long term in 106 patients with ST elevation MI (STEMI) requiring mechanical ventilation. RESULTS The incidence of mechanical ventilation was 7.6%. Reasons for intubation were as follows: cardiogenic shock in 64 (60.4%) patients, ventricular… CONTINUE READING
