About the author
Terrence Baruch, MD, FACC has been practicing interventional cardiology since 1992 in the Pasadena-Arcadia area of Los Angeles County, California. He has performed more than 10,000 cardiac procedures in that time; well over 500 have been emergency angioplasties for treatment of acute myocardial infarction. He is the director of the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory and the founder and director of the Heart Attack Program at the Methodist Hospital of Southern California. Dr. Baruch played an active role in the development of one of the first regional heart attack programs in southern California. He helped develop a program that trained emergency medical services (EMS) personnel to recognize a suspected heart attack, stabilize the patient, and then transport him or her to a cardiac center of excellence. Because of his expertise and vast experience, Dr. Baruch has been a national speaker on the state-of-the-art treatment of myocardial infarction, sponsored by companies such as Schering-Plough, Lilly, and Aventis. He has lectured at multiple hospitals in more than 20 different states, including Alaska and Hawaii. He has provided educational materials, guidelines, pathways, and sample hospital orders to these institutions so that they could organize their own STEMI programs.
