Myocardial Infarction: Treatment
Acute coronary syndrome is characterized by symptoms of myocardial ischemia. The condition can be life-threatening and requires immediate medical attention. One of the main symptoms associated with acute coronary syndrome is chest pain. Pain can also radiate to the arms, jaw, back and sometimes the teeth. Although not a hard and fast rule, the severity of symptoms will sometimes correlate with the degree of occlusion in the arteries. Additional symptoms of acute coronary syndrome may include nausea, shortness of breath and diaphoresis, as well as apprehension or a sense of impending doom.
