ABSTRACT
The article outlines the factors to consider in managing patients who have asymptomatic left ventricular systolic dysfunction (LVSD) after myocardial infarction. It points out the need for survivors of myocardial infarction to be assessed for asymptomatic LVDS. It is noted that cardiac nurses could help improve the survival and quality of life of patients by promoting the use of evidence-based therapies early in the course of treatment. Evidence-based treatment is said to be required under a multidisciplinary approach to care of patients.
