Patient/Bystander Recognition & Action: Rapid Identification & Treatment of Acute Myocardial Infarction
Kathleen Dracup (a.); Claude Lenfant (foreword). Addresses the need for patients who experience symptoms & signs of an acute myocardial infarction (AMI) to ideally receive treatment within the first hour after the onset of symptoms. After the first hour, the benefit from thrombolytic therapy begins to decline rapidly, although benefit can be derived up to 12 hours after symptom onset. The authors reviewed published research on how patient & bystander (e.g., family, friends, coworkers) factors contribute to the overall delay in receiving care for an AMI. The results of this review of the literature include recommendations for further research & community intervention.
