The First Hour of Acute Myocardial Infarction Observed During Mobile Intensive Care
Between September 1970 and February 1973, we studied 294 patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI) who were seen and managed within 1 h of the onset of symptoms. The 294 patients were alive when first seen or were successfully resuscitated. In 111 (38%) of the 294 patients the interval between the onset of symptoms and initial observation was not greater than 30 min.
