Prevalence of Acute Coronary Syndrome and Various Risk Factors in Acute Stroke Patients
Acute coronary syndrome is a potentially life-threatening condition associated with coronary heart disease. This article is accompanied by a self-assessment questionnaire so you can test your knowledge after reading it. Acute coronary syndrome refers to a range of potentially life-threatening conditions that affect the coronary artery blood supply to the heart, and is a common presentation in patients with coronary heart disease. Understanding the diagnostic approaches, as well as pharmacological and coronary interventions is crucial, given the prevalence of ACS.

A Case Study On ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME At Sacred Heart Unit(St. Paul Hospital)
Acute coronary syndrome ACS is a syndrome a set of signs and symptoms due to decreased blood flow in the coronary arteries such that part of the heart muscle is unable to function properly or dies. Many people with acute coronary syndromes present with symptoms other than chest pain, particularly women, older patients, and patients with diabetes mellitus.

In contrast with stable angina, unstable angina occurs suddenly, often at rest or with minimal exertion, or at lesser degrees of exertion than the individual's previous angina "crescendo angina".
Incidence, prognosis, and factors associated with cardiac arrest in patients hospitalized with acute coronary syndromes the GRACE Registry : A master's thesis. David D. Objectives: Contemporary data are lacking with respect to the incidence rates of, factors associated with, and impact of cardiac arrest from ventricular fibrillation or tachycardia VF-CA on hospital survival in patients admitted with an acute coronary syndrome ACS. The objectives of this multinational study were to characterize trends in the magnitude of in-hospital VF-CA complicating an ACS and describe its impact over time on hospital prognosis. Methods: The study population consisted of 59, patients enrolled in the Global Registry of Acute Coronary Events Study between and
