Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS)

Thank to Marry I'll try to explain this term :) Acute Coronary Syndrome is state in which heart receives not enough blood and oxygen and suffers causing symptoms such as pain in chest and shortness of breath. This is a severe condition that needs to be treated in hospital. The treatment is based on further examinations such as ECG, blood test and coronary catheterization. Generally patient should rest and take drugs prescribed by doctor: aspirin, nitroglicerin and call an ambulance. ACS is divided into 3 groups: unstable angina and miocardial infarction (without or with ST-elevation in ECG). Please ask if sth is unclear or want to know more. I'll be happy to explain :)
