Objective: To assess effect of comprehensive nursing intervention on emergency treatment of acute myocardial infarction patients. Methods: 80 patients were invested to join our study who were diagnosed as acute myocardial infarction. They went to the hospital for treatment from March 2017 to July 2019. The participants were randomly assigned to two groups, that included a control group (n = 40) and an intervention group (n = 40). The control group participants received conventional nursing in treatment process. The intervention group participants receive comprehensive nursing intervention. All participants provided the data after their condition stabilized, the data contains first aid time, average hospital stay, the situation of cardiovascular adverse events and patient satisfaction. Result: Base on recording result, first aid time and average hospital stay of intervention group are shorter than that of control group, and those are statistical significance. In cardiovascular adverse events research, intervention group has better performance in cardiovascular adverse, it contains post-infarction angina pectoris [5 (12.5%) vs 10 (25.0%)], heart failure [1 (2.5%) vs 5 (12.5%)], Myocardial infarction recur [1 (2.5%) vs 6 (15.0%)] and cardiac death [0 (0%) vs 1 (2.5%)]. In satisfaction research, intervention group has more very good assessments in the patient report (21 vs 12). Conclusion: the comprehensive nursing intervention has strongly improvement to acute myocardial infarction patients in emergency treatment. Its influence contains not only reducing first aid time and average hospital stay but also reducing the cases of cardiovascular adverse events. Additionally, it also can improve patient satisfaction in the treatment process.
