Answer

The American College of Cardiology in conjunction with with the American Heart Association (AHA/ACC) and the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) have developed guidelines for management of patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) [107, 108, 109, 110] and non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndromes (NSTE-ACS) [111, 112] which focus primarily on treatment in a hospital setting. Guidelines with specific recommendations for prehospital and emergency department (ED) management of patients with ACS were included in the 2015 revised international consensus guidelines on cardiopulmonary resuscitation and emergency cardiovascular care issued by the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR).
