guideline 2.085 : Emergency Management for Suspicion of Cardiac Event

While there is a standard protocol for treating patients for STEMIs outside the hospital, there has not been a protocol for inpatient areas. Consequently these patients are often not quickly identified and do not receive care according to the same rapid response sequence. Other cardiac adverse events are also on the rise necessitating rapid identification and response. A clinical guideline will help non-cardiac medical and nursing staff respond rapidly and appropriately to possible cardiac events.
