Abstract

Although current practice guidelines provide an evidence-based approach to the management of acute coronary syndromes, application of the evidence by individual physicians has been suboptimal. This gap between comprehensive guidelines and actual practice stimulated Oman Heart Association to issue a simplified series for the management of the common cardiac abnormalities to be applied by the entire cardiac caregivers all over the country. This simplified approach for the management of non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome provides a practical and systematic means to implement evidence-based medicine into clinical practice.
