Acute Myocardial Infarction with ST Segment Elevation

Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) with ST Segment Elevation, also known as STEMI is a type of heart attack. It can be determined through an electrocardiogram test. A heart attack can be an AMI or it can be STEMI, which is more lethal.

ACS or a heart attack occurs when the coronary artery undergoes thrombosis (blood clot formation) and the part of the heart muscles it supplies blood to, dies due to lack of oxygen.

In Acute Myocardial Infarction with ST Segment Elevation, the artery supplying blood to a part of the heart is completely blocked. As a result, the part the artery supplies blood to undergoes necrosis. It can be diagnosed by the characteristic changes produced on an electrocardiogram machine. The ST segment is an elevation found on such charts. It signifies that a large amount of heart damage is occurring.
