In the last 10 years major advances in the prevention and treatment of acute cardiac disorders have included new drugs, diagnostic methods (both invasive and noninvasive), and a new generation of pacemakers and catheter-directed arterial dilatation and drug delivery. In addition, significant changes have occurred in the organization of services for acute cardiac patients both before hospitalization and in specialized intensive care units within the hospital. These developments require the availability of a timely source of information on current practice. Such a source is Cardiac Emergencies.
