Abstract

The aim of this article is to provide a comprehensive review of the physiological processes that occur during the first hour following a myocardial infarction (MI). It will identify the general principles and the physiological processes that occur in response to a MI, outlining the consequences of cellular hypoxia to the heart. The implications for clinical practice and how they link to the physiological processes are detailed. Understanding the physiological principles involved in a MI is important for identification and to ensure patient management is initiated. This, together with prompt diagnosis and interventions, will assist in reducing mortality within the first hour following a MI.
