1 Ambulance diversion and myocardial infarction mortality Abstract Objective: To examine the relationship between ambulance diversions and the incidence of myocardial infarction deaths in New York City. Methods: We obtained data for and on all 9, deaths due to myocardial infarction in New York City, as well as periods of diversion status for 58 New York City. The ECG (electrocardiogram) was abnormal and supported a diagnosis of myocardial infarction, an acute coronary syndrome. The ECG of the patient can be found in Figure 2. Key findings in the ECG of a patient with acute coronary syndrome include T-wave inversions, ST-segment elevations, and pathologic Q waves (I.A.C. van der Bilt, ). The treatment of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) has undergone major changes over the past 20 years. Randomized clinical trials have shown that rapid reperfusion with either fibrinolysis or primary angioplasty in ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and the use of antithrombotic therapy for non-STEMI results in improved mortality and s: David Faxon, MD, FAHA.

Myocardial infarction (MI) refers to tissue death of the heart muscle caused by ischaemia, that is lack of oxygen delivery to myocardial is a type of acute coronary syndrome, which describes a sudden or short-term change in symptoms related to blood flow to the heart.

Unlike the other type of acute coronary syndrome, unstable angina, a myocardial infarction occurs Causes: Usually coronary artery disease. Silent myocardial infarction relates to the absence of symptoms usually associated with myocardial ischemia.

It has been estimated that silent myocardial infarction can occur in 2–4 % of young adult asymptomatic men. A majority of patients without an initially apparent cause of sudden death have been found at autopsy to have had study of deaths due to acute myocardial infarction in Belfast.
