In the article by O'Connor et al, “Part 10: Acute Coronary Syndromes: 2010 American Heart Association Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care,” which published ahead of print on October 18, 2010, and appeared with the November 2, 2010, issue of the journal Circulation (2010;122[suppl 3]:S787–S817), the following corrections were needed:
Page S789, Figure 2, fourth line under the box for Step 2 read, “Significant closed head/facial trauma within the previous 3 weeks.” It has been changed to read, “Significant closed head/facial trauma within the previous 3 months.”
Page S789, the first footnote for Figure 2 was inadvertently omitted. An asterisk has been added to the title of the figure, and the first footnote has been added. It now reads, “*Contraindications for fibrinolytic use in STEMI are viewed as advisory for clinical decision making and may not be all-inclusive or definitive. These contraindications are consistent with the 2004 ACC/AHA Guidelines for the Management of Patients With ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction.”
These corrections have been made to the current online version of the article, which is available at http://circ.ahajournals.org/cgi/content/full/122/18_suppl_3/S787.
