LLANOS VAL JIMENEZ, Carmen; CAMPO GIMENEZ, María del  and  GARCIA ATIENZA, Eva María. Update of Code of Coronary Reperfusion of Castilla-La Mancha (CORECAM). Action measures in Primary Care. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2019, vol.12, n.2, pp.75-81. ISSN 2386-8201.

Ischemic heart disease is the most common cause of death worldwide. Acute myocardial infarction with ST segment elevation is a time-dependent disease whose prognosis will depend, to a large extent, on the initial optimal management performed in health centers where a high percentage of patients seek medical care. Therefore, the work of the family doctor is decisive for an immediate and effective treatment of the patient who comes with a heart attack. In order to improve performance between out-of-hospital and hospital settings, a medical protocol called Code of Coronary Reperfusion of Castilla-La Mancha (CORECAM) was created. Its objective is to provide urgent and coordinated attention that allows early access to the reperfusion strategy, reducing mortality and improving prognosis. In this article, a revision of the CORECAM code is carried out with the purpose of summarizing the action measures that should be taken in the approach to patients with acute myocardial infarction in the field of Primary Care.
