ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction Complicated by Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


5-10% of ST-elevated myocardial infarctions (STEMI) present with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). Although this subgroup of patients carries the highest in-hospital mortality among the STEMI population, it is the least likely to undergo coronary angiography and revascularization. Due to the concomitant neurologic injury, patients with OHCA STEMI require prolonged hospitalization and adjustments to standard MI management. This review systematically assesses the course of patients with OHCA STEMI from development of the arrest to hospital discharge, assesses the limiting factors for their treatment access, and presents the evidence-based optimal intervention strategy for this high-risk MI population.
