NRMI and current treatment patterns for ST-elevation myocardial infarction

Am Heart J. 2004 Nov;148(5 Suppl):S29-33. doi: 10.1016/j.ahj.2004.09.012.


The National Registry of Myocardial Infarction (NRMI) is one of the oldest and largest registries of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Since 1990, 4 NRMI studies have been launched, one of which is ongoing (Table I). In all, 1600 hospitals have participated and >2.2 million patients have been followed. This paper highlights some of our discoveries pertaining to ST-segment elevation and subsequent contributions to patient care.
