STEMI Provider Manual

Updated:Jan 14,2014

Thousands of ST-segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI) patients fail to receive critical therapy in a timely fashion each year, and nearly 30 percent do not receive any reperfusion treatment at all. As a result, the American Heart Association created the STEMI Provider Manual to help address the ongoing need for training in the early recognition of STEMI.

This Manual prepares and enables out-of-hospital and in-hospital personnel to increase the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of STEMI patients.

STEMI Provider Manual

The STEMI Provider Manual is intended for personnel in out-of-hospital and in-hospital, including paramedics, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and physicians. Also for other STEMI systems of care providers.
