Impact of door-to-balloon time on long-term mortality in high- and low-risk patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction.
Bayshore Medical Center continues to boast one of the fastest door-to-balloon times in the state, which measures the time between a patients arrival in the Emergency Department to coronary intervention.
It has also shown that women have higher door-to-balloon times (time from when they arrive at the hospital to when they receive a coronary intervention like angioplasty and stenting).
For example, Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC) in the Netherlands is using Patient Flow Analytics to track and evaluate door-to-balloon time in myocardial infarction patients.
But while door-to-balloon time has decreased in recent years, this hasn't led to a reduction in mortality among patients who suffer a heart attack.
Even though the recommended door-to-balloon time can be achieved in most of the patients the total ischemic time remained long.
The researchers in this study compared the impact of the time from heart attack symptom onset-to-balloon and door-to-balloon on heart muscle function.
Information regarding the effects of ERS implementation on the door-to-balloon time (DBT) in transferred patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is scant.
When providing emergency angioplasty, South Nassau averages a "door-to-balloon-time" of approximately 62 minutes, which is 28 minutes faster than the national standard door-to-balloon time benchmark of 90 minutes.
LUMC's Cardiology Department set up the Door-To-Balloon Task Force focused on ischemic time in heart infarction patients.
Results: In patients receiving primary percutaneous coronary intervention the door-to-balloon time of provincial hospitals and municipal hospitals was 17213 minutes and 25114 minutes respectively.
At MountainStar hospitals, our heart care teams are trained to fully utilize the national door-to-balloon time initiative.
