Abstract

Myocardial infarction generally occurs in the presence of known risk factors and identifiable coronary artery disease. Atypical presentations due to therapeutic and illicit drug use are documented, however, and lead to the consideration of alternative pathophysiologic rationales for myocardial infarction. This article discusses central nervous system stimulants and other drugs that have the potential for myocardial damage and their nursing implications.
