dc.description.abstractThe aim of the regional cardiac networks is to offer to those patients affected by Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) the quickest and the most efficient treatment in relation to patients' characteristics and to the place where the event occurs. This article describes the experience developed by the Regional Emergency Medical Service of the Basilicata Region (Italy) in creating such a network. The structure of the network, the epidemiological data along with the different types of pathway used in the management of Non-ST elevation acute coronary syndromes are delineated with the aim to offer an overview of the clinical practices actually in place. A retrospective observational study was conducted in 2012 with the aim to understand the incidence of AMI in its various forms: ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and Non-ST elevation acute coronary syndromes (NSTEACS). The development of the Regional Cardiac Network has been shedding light on AMI and giving patients the chance to receive a customized treatment according to their clinical conditions. Further studies are recommended in order to understand the impact of these practices in terms of reduction of mortality and complications.
