Abstract

Report of 107 cases of primary transportation in ambulances especially equipped for coronary patients monitoring. The various delays of admission were studied and the complications occuring during transportation were analyzed, together with the various therapeutic methods applied. On the basis of this personal experience, and to attempt at diminishing the mortality at the acute stage of myocardial infarction, it was advised: --a careful information of the public, --a systematic training of the physicians, --a logic organization of emergency care. Only a coherent set up of fixed and mobile units might result in improvement of the prognosis of the first hours after myocardial infarction.
