The purpose of the study is to examine ways in which a clinical information system can help patients better recognize the signs and symptoms of an acute myocardial infarction (heart attack) and to take actions to decrease morbidity and mortality that may be related to delay in seeking treatment. The software-based intervention will use the best scientific evidence to create tailored strategies using a patient's specific health data. This approach is based on well-established cognitive and behavioral educational models.

The overarching goal of this program to increase the use of evidence-based, secondary-prevention medications and promote healthy lifestyles among myocardial infarction (MI) patients throug...
The purpose of this project is to test two different types of health messages, one that is developed for a specific group (targeted) and the other that is more personalized to individuals ...
This study will develop and evaluate the effectiveness of tailored web-based messages in promoting condom use among young adults.
Long-term beta-blocker therapy has not been investigated in contemporary randomized clinical trials in patients with myocardial infarction and normal heart function. The aim of this study ...
ST-elevation myocardial infarction is a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. ST-elevation myocardial infarction damages the regional myocardium that undergoes ischemia and nec...
First, describe how acute myocardial infarction criteria are used to diagnose type 1 (T1MI) and 2 (T2MI) myocardial infarction. Second, determine whether subjective or objective criteria are used for ...
After the introduction of the universal definition of myocardial infarction, the incidence and diagnosis of type 2 myocardial infarction have risen dramatically, yet there are no clear guidelines on c...

A 68-year-old man with a non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) presented with a low risk profile indicating invasive revascularization within 72 h. However, left ventricular (LV) global long...
MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in which the anterior wall of the heart is involved. Anterior wall myocardial infarction is often caused by occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery. It can be categorized as anteroseptal or anterolateral wall myocardial infarction.
A myocardial infarction that does not produce elevations in the ST segments of the ELECTROCARDIOGRAM. ST segment elevation of the ECG is often used in determining the treatment protocol (see also ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction).
A clinical syndrome defined by MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA symptoms; persistent elevation in the ST segments of the ELECTROCARDIOGRAM; and release of BIOMARKERS of myocardial NECROSIS (e.g., elevated TROPONIN levels). ST segment elevation in the ECG is often used in determining the treatment protocol (see also NON-ST ELEVATION MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION).
MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in which the inferior wall of the heart is involved. It is often caused by occlusion of the right coronary artery.
Laceration or tearing of cardiac tissues appearing after MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
Cardiology is a specialty of internal medicine. Cardiac electrophysiology : Study of the electrical properties and conduction diseases of the heart. Echocardiography : The use of ultrasound to study the mechanical function/physics of the h...
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
