Critical care nurses often lament about patient situations in which their ability to provide definitive nursing care is limited. In the care of the patient vulnerable to AMI, however, a number of concrete interventions are available to ameliorate the potentially devastating effects of this disorder. Implementation of the patient education program described here is one sure way that critical care nurses can assist in effectively reducing the mortality and morbidity associated with AMI. Adopt it and make a difference.
