Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


The acute coronary syndromes (ACS) represent a heterogeneous group of patients along a continuum of risk from unstable angina to non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction. ACS is a term that has been used to describe the constellation of clinical symptoms that represent acute myocardial ischemia. This article reviews the adjunctive medications that are used during emergency cardiovasculare care for the early management of patients experiencing the ACS. The adjunctive therapies are divided into early immediate treatment and then subsequent management in the acute care setting.
