Abstract

For patients with myocardial infarction, prompt and effective pain management is vital because the emotional stress caused by the pain may extend the original infarct. This article describes psychological approaches that may be used to alleviate pain in patients with myocardial infarction. The author emphasises that these approaches should not be used alone, but in conjunction with pharmacological pain relief.
