Abstract

Continuous ST-segment analysis is an accurate and noninvasive tool for monitoring coronary artery patency in patients with acute myocardial infarction. This type of monitoring also is easy to use and cost effective. The critical care nurse plays a pivotal role in initiating ST-segment monitoring, promptly detecting ST-segment changes, and rapidly intervening to achieve myocardial reperfusion.
