- Thirty percent of deaths worldwide are from Coronary Artery Disease
- Every 25 seconds an American will have an Acute Coronary Event
- Every minute one American will die from this event
- Reducing a patient’s door-to-balloon time improves mortality and is a CMS quality metric
- Out of Hospital ECG and advance notification is associated with a 39% reduction in short-term mortality and improves door-to-balloon and door-to-needle times
Could your cath lab be prepared faster if the following was completed during transport?
