My Mentorship
 The hospital I do my mentorship at is Memorial
Hermann South-east.
 It is located at 11800 Astoria Blvd, Houston, Texas,

 I really enjoy this hospital because the atmosphere and

the people are very welcoming.
 ISM, also known as Independent Study Mentorship, is a
class where one is able to follow the career they are
interested in for their future.
 ISM requires 3 mentorship hours a week, a journal entry
and activity log due every Monday by 2:30pm, and
weekly assignments leading to your Mid-Term
What is ISM? presentation and Final Presentation and product at the
end of each semester.
 For the second semester, my project topic will be the
study of Myocardial Infarction.

My Project  I chose this topic because it is one of the most common

problems at Memorial Hermann South-east and I find it
Topic very interesting.
 Anatomy of the heart
 What is Myocardial Infarctions
 What sections of the heart will be affected
 What procedures will patients go through when having
Key Points  Long-term effects of patient due to MI.
 Anatomy of the heart:

Key Point 1
 What is Myocardial Infarctions?
 Also known as, “Heart Attack”
 This is death or damage of part of heart muscle
 The supply of blood to the heart was severely reduced
or stopped.
 This blockage is caused by atherosclerosis, the build up
of plaque in the artery walls, or by a blood clot in
coronary valve.
Key Point 2
 What sections of the heart are affected?

Key Point 3
 How do we treat patients with Myocardial
 Anticoagulant medications/aspirin to prevent growth of
blood clots in arteries.
 Clot dissolving medication to open blocked arteries
 Supplement oxygen to increase supply of the oxygen to
the heart’s muscle.
 Medications to decrease the need for oxygen by the
Key Point 4 heart’s muscle

 Cardiac surgery
 What are the long-term effects of Myocardial Infarction?
 More than 1.5 million Americans suffer from this every year, nearly
half a million die

 Most Myocardial Infarctions are the end result of progressive

coronary artery disease.
 63% of women and 48% of men who died suddenly of coronary
artery disease have no previous symptoms.
 1/5 patients with Myocardial Infarctions are unaware that the MI has
Key Point 5 occurred.
 This article explains why first time teen mom's have an
increased risk for heart disease. All of the women were
between the ages 65 and 74.
 The researchers noted the age they first became
pregnant and used a blood test to check for
Current Event connections to heart disease.

 What are some contributing factors leading to heart

diseases like Myocardial Infarction?
 This article states that this caused by the stress and
struggles teen moms go through.
 The article was interesting because the test did connect
higher heart disease rates to early mothers.
Current Event  This leads to a bigger question like, “is there more
part 2 behind the cause of Myocardial Infarctions?” or, “Do
cortisol levels have anything to do with heart disease?”
 For my final product, my mentor and I produced a
model of Myocardial Infarction.
Product  It was made using play-dough.
 For this semester, I am so thankful to learn more about
the ICU and RRT.
 I also learned and saw new things with a open-mind
and open-heart.

 Completing my project learned and saw a lot of things

that can gave me a better understanding of MI.

 Thank you to my mentor, graders, evaluators, teachers,
and parents for watching!

Thank you!
