• Rapid response and assessment is essential for effective treatment.

• Pain relief, oxygen, aspirin, and nitrates, with or without atropine as appropriate, should be given immediately (or pre-hospital).

• Thrombolysis is still the main reperfusion strategy, but encouraging results have been obtained with direct percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty.

• If transfer to the coronary care unit is not immediate, begin thrombolysis in the emergency room (or outside pre-hospital where appropriate).
