ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROMES W/OUT PERSISTENT ST-SEGMENT ELEVATION
Acute coronary syndromes refer to any constellation of clinical symptoms compatible with acute myocardial ischemia which may be life-threatening.
It encompasses unstable angina, non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) and ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI).
Unstable angina is the ischemic discomfort that presents without persistent ST-segment elevation on ECG and without the presence of cardiac markers in the blood.
Non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction is diagnosed if cardiac markers are positive with ST-segment depression or with nonspecific or normal ECGs.
The patient typically presents with ischemic-type chest pain that is severe and prolonged and may occur at rest or may be caused by less exertion than previous episodes.

Adherence to a beneficial lifestyle may significantly reduce the risk of chronic hypertension after hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (HDP) such as gestational hypertension and pre-eclampsia, a recent study suggests. Keeping a healthy weight appears to be critical in women with a history of HDP compared with those without such a history.
