A sudden onset of chest pain can be caused by many factors such as, for example, a disease of pulmonary system, GI system, disease of the cardiac muscle, or coronary artery disease. The main factor of Acute Coronary Syndrome is due to the results of coronary occlusion or lack of blood from the narrowing of artery to supply the heart muscle. This intern caused cardiac muscle to die very rapidly or called muscle necrosis in 6 hours. Heart muscle that lacked of blood supply more than 90% with only 10% of good blood supply to heart muscle will eventually develop sudden of acute heart failure, acute myocardial infarction, and patient could be dead in a matter of time. Patient who has somewhat warning symptoms should seek an emergency medical attention. Physician will treat Acute Myocardial Infarction by opening up the occluded coronary vessel or vessels to safe the remaining of good heart muscle. This procedure can safe the life of patient and prevents any complication that may arise.
Acute MI Clinical Pathway is a Clinical Pathway that established for all health care personnel to provide standard care to all chest pain patients with acute coronary occlusion by following the policy accordingly to the Clinical Pathway.
Acute MI Clinical Pathway Mission is to provide high quality of Acute MI care in a compassionate environment through integrated trained health care team.
To ensure proper care for Acute MI patient by providing up to standard treatment and quick reperfusion therapy.
