      "The Coronary Care Manual" has been designed as a practical manual for the management of the acute coronary patient, and aims to achieve a balance between the large and rapidly changing evidence base and practical application in the CCU, ICU, ED and ambulance. Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is the clinical manifestation of the critical phase of coronary artery disease (CAD). Based on electrocardiogram (ECG) and biochemical markers it is distinguished from ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI), and unstable angina. The common underlying pathophysiology is related to plaque rupture or erosion with.

These are, with rare exceptions (Table ), a consequence of acute thrombus formation related to a disrupted coronary atherosclerotic plaque. Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) affects millions of patients annually and requires immediate diagnosis and therapy. Critically, given the aging global population, ACS is set to become an even greater medical problem, not only for the emergency room and cardiology physicians, but for all specialists treating the older population at risk of ACS.

Since Herrick’s description of the clinical picture of acute myocardial infarction exactly one century ago (), there have been three phases of therapy: Phase 1 (–, bed rest and ‘expectant’ treatment); Phase 2 (–, the coronary care unit); and Phase 3 (–present, myocardial reperfusion).Cited by: Background.

Although data from animal studies support this notion, clinical studies undertaken in patients with acute and chronic coronary artery disease do not conclusively demonstrate benefits of such therapy. The potential benefits and the ability to improve cardiac function with the stem cell-based therapy need to be further addressed.

Management of acute coronary syndrome is targeted against the effects of reduced blood flow to the afflicted area of the heart muscle, usually because of a blood clot in one of the coronary arteries, the vessels that supply oxygenated blood to the is achieved with urgent hospitalization and medical therapy, including drugs that relieve chest pain and reduce the size of the Specialty: cardiology.

Acute coronary syndromes encompass a spectrum of conditions which include unstable angina, and myocardial infarction with or without ST-segment elevation. Patients with different acute coronary syndromes may present similarly; definitive diagnosis is made on the basis of clinical presentation, ECG changes, and measurement of biochemical cardiac.
