Read the amazing story of the 44-year-old nurse who got acute chest pain in a remote area of Australia. He was the only clinican in the area, so he took his own ECG, diagnosed his acute MI, and cannulated and thrombolysed himself!

They make them tough in Australia.


A stent to a 44-year old who works and lives in isolation. I wonder what would a Heart Team recommend if they were consulted..............
