Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS)

The EvidenceCare Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) pathway is based off of the 2013 American College of Cardiology Foundation/American Heart Association (ACCF/AHA) STEMI guidelines, 2014 American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) NSTEMI guidelines and includes the 2015 American Heart Association (AHA) Acute Coronary Syndromes update. All phases of ACS care are addressed, with focus on appropriate intervention strategies for NSTEMI and STEMI care, including care of patients after resuscitated cardiac arrest with suspected ACS. Included are the 2015 updates on STEMI care that reflect guideline changes based on the interval of time of symptom onset to intervention versus previous recommendations based on interval from first medical contact to intervention.
