An 86-year-old male patient with a medical history of atrial fibrillation and non-obstructive coronary artery disease experienced chest pain after a game of Jass. Use of sublingual nitroglycerin spray had some effect, but the chest pain persisted. Therefore, the patient’s general practitioner called an ambulance to transport the patient to the emergency department for cardiac analysis. When the ambulance arrived at the scene an electrocardiogram was made (Fig. 1). The cardiologist on call was consulted for activating the protocol for ST-elevation myocardial infarction.

Keynote webinar | Spotlight on medication adherence

Medication non-adherence is a major barrier to effective healthcare delivery; half of all patients do not follow their doctor’s recommendations or treatment plan.

Our experts explain the fundamentals with a practical discussion of how to manage non-adherence in two common scenarios: hypertension and asthma control.
