Study Description
Brief Summary:
Remote ischemic preconditioning has proven beneficial in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention and coronary artery bypass surgery. Animal studies suggest remote ischemic preconditioning increases levels of interleukin 10. The investigators aim to determine whether remote ischemic preconditioning results in an increase in IL-10 levels in patients following acute myocardial infarction.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Acute Myocardial Infarction Other: Blood pressure cuff insufflation
