Abstract

Highlights

  • India faces an epidemic of cardiovascular disease and ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and is in need of urgent solutions.
  • Implementing effective systems in resource-poor settings has distinctive challenges.
  • Universal health care is critical for the success of the STEMI-India model.
  • Any physician should be able to identify STEMI and deliver appropriate fibrinolysis.
  • To counter the epidemic of cardiovascular disease and STEMI, a nationalized program is needed.
