The SOCCER-study: Effects of Oxygen Therapy on Myocardial Salvage in ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction – A Randomized Trial

Our results showing no difference in MSI between the O2 and air groups suggests that supplemental O2 did not affect the efficacy of reperfusion in STEMI patients accepted for acute PCI. These results support the safety of withholding supplemental oxygen in normoxic STEMI patients.
