Prodromal myocardial infarction symptoms are those symptoms that occur prior to a myocardial infarction, and fatigue is common. However, the concept of prodromal myocardial infarction fatigue has not been explored from a multidimensional perspective using a concept analysis approach. The purpose of this concept analysis was to analyze this concept, using Walker and Avant's (2011) concept analysis methodology. A comprehensive literature search revealed 41 records for analysis. The structure and function of this concept was examined, and an operational definition of prodromal myocardial infarction fatigue was developed. Copyright © 2019 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc.
