This study presents a ten-year experience in the diagnosis and management of acute myocardial infarction in a 150-bed general hospital in La Crosse, Wisconsin, a city of 45,000 inhabitants. The cases were seen in the Lutheran Hospital and the Gundersen Clinic, which are attached and which share common medical records and medical staff. Because the policy of this closed medical staff is to treat all heart attacks in the hospital, no patients were treated at home. It is believed, therefore, that this report approximates general medical experience with acute myocardial infarction in smaller midwestern hospitals of the United States.
