Background: 

Patients with acute cardiac emergencies in Sudan present to Emergency rooms which are staffed by junior physicians; who are undertrained, under-supervised, and work under exceptionally harsh conditions. A common recurrent scenario is that of a patient who presents with an acute ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction that is diagnosed by an ECG and treated with a life-saving medication – Streptokinase – which are both available to the junior physician. However, due to a lack of ECG interpretation skills, the junior physician does not administer the treatment in a timely manner resulting in patient death (either acutely or in the form of a shortened lifespan). 

Objective

  1. Diagnose and treat Acute Cardiac Emergencies
    1. Maximally utilize limited available resources
