Supersaturated Oxygen (SSO2) Therapy in STEMI Treatments
Published: 06 December 2021
Despite advances in reperfusion with primary stenting, progress in STEMI outcomes has stalled over the past 20 years. With 90% of coronary blood flow in the capillaries, the answer might be in the microvasculature. TherOx SSO2 Therapy is the first FDA approved therapy shown to significantly reduce the infarct size in STEMI patients.
During this series of webinars on Supersaturated Oxygen (SSO2) Therapy, our faculty of renowned international experts will discuss and dissect the mechanisms and data around this promising new therapy for STEMI patients.
- Understand how SSO2 Therapy works
- Hear about trends in STEMI treatment
- Explore the role of microvascular obstruction and infarct size in outcomes
- Understand the science behind SSO2 Therapy
This series is designed for the entire cardiology community:
- Interventional Cardiologists
- Clinical Fellows and Trainees
