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.

This broadcast series is supported by

Key Objectives

Part 2

SSO2 Therapy in STEMI to Reduce Infarct Size: A Conversation with Global Thought Leaders

Learn about this promising new therapy for STEMI patients and hear from global thought leaders, Dr Dan Burkhoff, Dr Steven Yakubov, Dr Andreas Schäfer and Dr Richard Schatz, about their experiences with it.

Part 3

Infarct Size, Microvascular Obstruction and Outcomes in STEMI: An Expert Panel Discussion

Learn about which patients are at greatest risk of microvascular obstruction (MVO) and large infarcts, how we can diagnose MVO and how we can treat MVO and infarct. Moderated by Dr Nadia Sutton, hear global thought leaders Dr Babar Basir, Dr Dan Burkhoff, Dr Suzanne de Waha and Dr Jay Traverse answer these questions.

Part 4

Transforming STEMI Care: Bridging Interventional and Heart Failure Cardiology to Improve Patient Outcomes

This engaging session features the collaborative efforts of interventional and heart failure cardiologists in revolutionizing the management of ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI) and its impact on heart failure. Through a dynamic fireside chat format, our esteemed panelists will explore groundbreaking approaches and advancements that are reshaping STEMI care.
