Operational factors affecting maternal mortality in Tanzania. (1/381)

Identification of the main operational factors in cases of maternal death within and outside the health care system is necessary for safe motherhood programmes. In this study, a follow-up was done of all 117 cases of maternal deaths in Ilala district, Dar es Salaam, 1991-1993, at all levels of care. In all, 79% received some medical care whereas 11% arrived too late for treatment. For each case the major operational factors and all health care interventions were defined through interviews with family members and health care staff and from hospital records, and the avoidability of each case was determined. In the health institutions where the women had consulted, the available resources were assessed. It was found that in most cases the husband (29%) or the mother (31%) of the woman decided on her care in cases of complications, and together with the lack of transport, this often caused delay at home. Also, delay in transfer from the district hospital was common. Cases of abortion complications were often not managed on time because of the delay in reporting to hospital or misleading information. Suboptimal care was identified in 77% of the cases reaching health care. Inadequate treatment was identified by the district health staff in 61% and by the referral centres in 12% of their cases. Wrong decision at the district level and lack of equipment at the referral centre were the main reasons for inadequate care. It is concluded that although community education on danger signs in pregnancy and labour is important, provision of the core resources and supplies for emergency obstetric interventions, as well as clear protocols for management and referral, are absolutely necessary for improvement of maternal survival.  (+info)

Safety of air medical transportation after tissue plasminogen activator administration in acute ischemic stroke. (2/381)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: We sought to determine the safety of air medical transport (AMT) of patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS) immediately after or during administration of tissue plasminogen activator (tPA). Patients with AIS treated with tPA in nonuniversity hospitals frequently need transfer to tertiary care centers that can provide specialized care. AMT is a widely available mode of transport that is crucial in providing expedient and quality health care to critically ill patients while assuring high level of care during transportation. The safety of AMT of patients with AIS after or during administration of tPA has not been examined. METHODS: We performed retrospective chart review of 24 patients with AIS who were treated with intravenous tPA and transferred by helicopter to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania or the University of Cincinnati Hospital. The charts were reviewed for neurological complications, systemic complications, and adherence to the National Institutes of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) protocol for AIS management. RESULTS: No major neurological or systemic complications occurred. Four patients had hypertension warranting treatment, 3 patients experienced motion sickness, 1 patient developed a transient confusional state, and 1 patient experienced minor systemic bleeding. Four NINDS protocol violations occurred, all related to blood pressure management. CONCLUSIONS: In this small series, AMT of AIS patients after thrombolysis was not associated with any major neurological or systemic complications. Flight crew education on the NINDS AIS protocol is essential in limiting the number of protocol violations. AMT of patients with AIS provides fast and safe access to tertiary centers that can provide state of the art stroke therapy.  (+info)

A single-center 8-year experience with percutaneous dilational tracheostomy. (3/381)

OBJECTIVE: To determine surgical, postoperative, and postdischarge complications associated with percutaneous dilational tracheostomy (PDT) in an 8-year experience at the University of Kentucky. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: There are known risks associated with the transport of critically ill patients to the operating room for elective tracheostomy, and less-than-optimal conditions may interfere with open bedside tracheostomy. PDT has been introduced as an alternative to open tracheostomy. Despite information supporting its safety and utility, the technique has been criticized because advocates had not provided sufficient information regarding complications. METHODS: A prospective database was initiated on all patients who underwent PDT between September 1990 and May 1998. The database provided indication, procedure time, duration of intubation before PDT, and intraoperative and postoperative complications. Retrospective review of medical records and phone interviews provided long-term follow-up information. RESULTS: In the 8-year period, 827 PDTs were performed in 824 patients. Two patients were excluded because PDT could not be completed for technical reasons. There were 519 male and 305 female patients. Mean age was 56 years. Prolonged mechanical ventilatory support was the most common indication. Mean procedure time was 15 minutes, and the average duration of intubation before PDT was 10 days. The intraoperative complication rate was 6%, with premature extubation the most common complication. The procedure-related death rate was 0.6%. Postoperative complications were found in 5%, with bleeding the most common. With a mean follow-up of greater than 1 year, the tracheal stenosis rate was 1.6%. CONCLUSIONS: On the basis of this large, single-center study, the authors conclude that when performed by experienced surgeons, PDT is a safe and effective alternative to open surgical tracheostomy for intubated patients who require elective tracheostomy.  (+info)

Pediatric emergency preparedness in the office. (4/381)

Pediatric office emergencies occur more commonly than is usually perceived by family physicians, and most offices are not optimally prepared to deal with these situations. Obtaining specific training in pediatric emergencies and performing mock "codes" to check office readiness can improve the proper handling of pediatric emergencies. Common airway emergencies include foreign-body aspiration and croup. Cool mist, racemic epinephrine nebulization and dexamethasone are typical treatment measures for croup. Asthma and bronchiolitis are common causes of respiratory distress. Hypovolemic shock is the most common cause of circulatory failure in children. Intraosseous access is a simple and underutilized route for vascular access in a critically ill child. Status epilepticus is the most common neurologic emergency. Avoidance of iatrogenic respiratory depression and hypotension can be optimized by taking an algorithmic approach to the use of anticonvulsant medications. Transport of patients after initial stabilization of an emergency should always be done in a manner that provides adequate safety and monitoring.  (+info)

What does it cost the patient to see the doctor? (5/381)

Against a background of increasing demands on limited resources, there will be an emphasis on undertaking studies that relate benefits of an intervention to the costs that are incurred in their production. Patient costs are an important, but often overlooked, part of an economic exercise and include transport costs, loss of employment, and loss of leisure time. This paper highlights the theoretical difficulties inherent in deriving patient costs and suggests a pragmatic framework to derive unit costs in these areas. We demonstrate that these costs are not inconsiderable when compared with the cost of a general practitioner consultation.  (+info)

Effects of ambulance transport in critically ill patients. (6/381)

Two groups of critically ill patients were transferred by ambulance from other hospitals to a central intensive therapy unit. The effect of transport was reviewed retrospectively in 46 patients and prospectively in 20 patients. Of the 46 patients reviewed retrospectively six became hypotensive, six became hypertensive, and seven developed delayed hypotension. One patient developed fits and six out of 13 patients had a rise in arterial PCO-2 of 1-6-4-1 kPa (12-31 mm Hg). Of the 20 patients reviewed prospectively, one patient became hypertensive due to overtransfusion, one had a fit, but none became hypotensive. Three out of four cases of delayed hypotension were related to starting intermittent positive pressure ventilation. Arterial PCO-2 fell in one patient and arterial PCO-2 rose in two, each change being related to changed oxygen therapy or narcotics. There were no changes in other cardiovascular or respiratory indices, body temperature, or urine production. Earlier transfer, resuscitation before transfer, continuing medical care during the journey, and hence a slower smoother journey seemed to be important factors in the management of these patients. Our findings, may have important implications in the future regional organization of the care of critically ill patients.  (+info)

Movement of criticall ill patients within hospital. (7/381)

Critically ill patients were observed during routine movement inside the hospital to and from the intensive therapy unit. One patient a month suffered major cardiorespiratory collapse or death as a direct result of movement. Renewed bleeding of a pelvic fracture, cardiac arrhythmia, cardiac embarrassment due to a haemothorax, and cardiovascular decompensation were seen. It was difficult to continue treatment during movement, especially maintaining an airway or providing adequate intermittent positive pressure ventilation. Seventy postoperative patients suffered few ill effects on being moved. Greater awareness of the dangers of moving critically ill patients within hospital is needed. Thorough preparation for the move and adequate maintenance of treatment during movement requires the skill of experienced medical staff.  (+info)

Heart transplantation in children in foreign countries with reference to medical, transportation, and financial issues. (8/381)

Heart transplantation is increasingly becoming accepted worldwide as therapy for end-stage heart failure not only in adult patients but also in pediatric practice. The new law in Japan for organ transplantation from brain-dead patients was established on 16 October 1998, but there is no definite law or protocol for brain death in children under the age of 6 years and children less than 15 years of age cannot become donors. These facts make organ transplantation from the cadavers of neonates, infants and young children almost impossible in Japan, even though there are children who need heart or heart-lung transplantation. The present authors have to date transferred 8 patients to the USA or Germany for heart transplantation: 4 successfully underwent heart transplantation, but 4 died during the waiting period overseas. There are many things to consider; not only the medical problems involved in transportation, but also the financial issues when transferring patients to other countries. This report details the experience with the 8 cases that were transferred overseas for heart transplantation, and highlights the problems that need to be considered.  (+info)

JOHN A. MASTROPIETRO, CHAIRMAN. The claimant has petitioned for review from a February 1, 2000 Ruling on Motion to Preclude Defense that was issued by the Commissioner acting for the Second District. He contends on appeal that the trier erroneously denied his motion because he incorrectly concluded that this Commission lacks subject matter jurisdiction over the instant claim. We find no error, and affirm the trial commissioners decision.. The claimant is a longtime resident of Pawcatuck, Connecticut. The trier found that he was working as a truck driver in 1990 when he contacted the respondent Venezia Transport Services (Venezia), a trucking company located in Limerick, Pennsylvania, to inquire about employment prospects. His application was initially rejected because he did not have ten years of steady work experience. In June 1991, however, the respondent mailed an employment application to his home, and the claimant submitted that application. Shortly afterward, he called Venezia to check on ...

A system for selectively disabling use of at least selected features of a stand-alone electronic device under a predetermined set of conditions. The system establishes a state of the set of conditions as being satisfied or unsatisfied, communicates the state to the electronic device, and disables the selected features if the state is satisfied. In one embodiment, the system may be advantageously be used to prevent vehicular accidents by at least partially disabling non-emergency use of a wireless telephone in a moving vehicle. In another embodiment, the system may be used to disable features of an electronic device within a predetermined area having a boundary that is independent of a communications network cell.
A method and apparatus for facilitating the transportation of medical images on a communication network includes a medical image transport service (MITS) that may be used to set policy associated with the delivery of medical images on the network. The MITS may be configured to schedule transactions in an equitable manner taking into account the relative priority of the various contending medical image transactions and mediate delivery of images associated with the transactions. The MITS may include a data management service configured to interact with clients to handle transfers on the network, and a network resource manager configured to interface with network devices performing the transport services to enable network resources such as routes, paths, and bandwidth, to be reserved on the network. An administration client enables policy to be set on the MITS to enable operation of the transport service to be controlled.

Approved by the ACEP Board of Directors, June 2014. The American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) believes that certification by non-emergency medicine external bodies, organizations, societies or other medical specialties or upon short course completion is inadequate to demonstrate comprehensive training, knowledge, and skill in the practice of emergency ultrasound.. Emergency ultrasound comprises a set of focused applications utilized to diagnose life-threatening conditions, guide invasive procedures, and treat emergency medical conditions. Both residency-based and practice-based pathways exist for emergency physicians to demonstrate competency in emergency ultrasound as detailed in the ACEP policy statement, “Emergency Ultrasound Guidelines.†Any non-emergency medicine external certification process would impede the use of this critical clinical skill and adversely affect patient care.. ACEP strongly opposes the use of any non-emergency medicine external ...
Rural Transport in Developing Countries, Disk 27, File 26-683, book, 145 pages, by I. Barwell et. al., 1985, £7.95 from ITDG. "Recent research has drawn attention to the fact that: 1) Few regular transport services operate away from all-weather road networks. However, many people live remote from such networks …. 2) In areas with all-weather road access, motor vehicles are beyond the financial means of the majority of people. Equally, many people cannot afford to use the transport services which do operate." "There is unlikely to be a significant improvement in this situation for the foreseeable future given the limited resources available for expansion of road networks and motor vehicle fleets, and the problems of maintaining existing roads and operating conventional motor vehicles." The nine case studies on the transport needs of rural people presented here provide some evidence that contradicts long-held notions about the nature of rural transport activities. Not only are footpaths and ...

Six months ago, Ford laid out an ambitious plan to expand its GoRide Health transportation service with an aim at delivering thousands of rides every day to hospitals, doctor offices and other health care facilities by the end of the year. In a few weeks, the service, which provided transportation for non-emergency care, will no longer exist - at least in its current form.. GoRide Health is pivoting. The automaker will shut down GoRide Health services in five cities in which it currently operates, including Detroit as well as Toledo, Dayton, Cleveland and Cincinnati, Ohio. The company will now concentrate its efforts on Miami, where it has yet to launch, with a focus on autonomous vehicles..

Unison general secretary Dave Prentis said: "Social care and the NHS are in such a state of crisis that any initiative to ease the pressure will be welcomed by patients and staff.. "But the funding chasm between what is needed and the pitiful amount councils currently have to commission care is too deep.. "Nothing short of an emergency injection of cash in the Budget, followed by the sustained and realistic funding of health and care will be enough..

Please dont forget that the SPOT also has a non-911 "Help" button. Maybe your chain broke and now it is too short to get around your desperately needed low gear on the rear cassette.

Maybe the pawls in your freehub start slipping and although you arent desperate yet you are hurting. You dont need the National Guard helicopter, but it is time to "pull the plug." Maybe your support person(s) just needs to contact the race support team and have them pick you up with a snow mobile.

In the summer of 2012, Washington state emergency rooms ("ER") began tracking patients in a statewide database. Expanding Medicaid rolls and legislative attempts to cap reimbursements for non-emergency visits to ERs left the state, hospitals, and physicians knowing they had to do something to cut costs and improve quality of care within the ER setting. The product of their collaboration was the creation of seven "best practices," known collectively as the "ER is for Emergencies" campaign. In addition to the mandatory, statewide database, the campaign urged health care providers to: More , ...

At more and more emergency rooms, the slogan ought to be, The doctor wont see you now-or wont unless you first pony-up a fee of $100 dollars or more. The fees are meant to discourage non-emergency patients-people suffering from nothing worse, say, than a sore throat or a skinned knee-from taking up time and resources better reserved for the seriously sick.

But what remains to be seen is whether a shortage of healthcare professionals will inhibit urgent care center growth.

I decided last Tuesday to go ahead with the scheduled induction and was given a 5:30 am call time for Wednesday, April 27th. So after putting Callan to bed and telling him when he woke up the next morning I would be gone to go get his baby sister, we went off to bed (after doing things like setting up the bassinet, packing a bag, etc. Nothing like waiting until the last minute). Huge and I got up and headed to the hospital before everyone was up, but it seems like many other people had headed there the night before as well and lots of babies were being born. After waiting for 2 hours, we were told wed have to come back later that day once things quieted down. I guess having a non-emergency induction really bumps you to the end of the line! So off we went to grab some food and run some errands before baby #2 arrived. We finally got the call that afternoon and headed back to the hospital around 2. By 2:30 I was checked in, hooked up and ready to go. And then thats when the waiting happened... ...

Medicaid beneficiaries may be able to call for a free, non-emergency ride to a doctor appointment, to a dialysis treatment or to see a mental health professional.

By David Poulson. One in three Americans lives in rural areas where getting urgent medical care for events like cardiac emergencies, stroke and trauma are extremely difficult due to the distance of appropriate medical facilities. Since 1990, over 22% of Americas hospitals have closed.. Getting timely, appropriate medical care is deadly serious. Trauma doctors refer to the first hour after a traumatic injury as the "Golden Hour" because during this critical window, the right kind of medical care can lead to vastly better outcomes with regard to saving lives and preserving quality of life. Eighty-five million Americans who live more than one hour from a hospital with a Level 1 or Level 2 trauma center by ground transport can only access these centers within the Golden Hour because of air medical services. For these Americans there is literally no way to get appropriate emergency care without air transport.. Emergency air medical transport providers, which most often use helicopters, provide a ...

The need for high class public transport service of the increasing travel across the radial urban structure of the greater Copenhagen region was examined through planning of a light rail. The exact corridor (defined as the Ring 2½ corridor) and alignment of the light rail were documented and the locations of stops were examined through analyses of catchment areas. The timetable of the light rail was determined through travel time and correspondences with other high class public transport lines/corridors. The justification of the light rail was examined through factors like traffic impacts, operation economy, socioeconomics and strategic impacts. The light rail shows a good result on most factors. But it displays socioeconomic non-viability. However, this was expected when using the standard procedures. But the Ring 2½ light rail shows a better socioeconomic result than many other examined light rail ...
The second resolution introduced by Mr. Brooks and Robbie Tester, LifeForce Pre-Hospital Care, Event and Disaster Medicine and Regional Operations Center administrator, was the proposal to consolidate operations of the LifeForce Communication Center, Chattanooga MedComm, (Ground EMS transport service communications operation) and the Erlanger Patient Logistics operations (transfer and bed placement) into one location. Currently the Patient Logistics center, which houses Erlangers transfer center and bed placement operations, is located on the first floor of the central wing. The LifeForce flight operations and Chattanooga MedComm Center are on the fourth floor of the main parking garage. Mr. Teeter said the project "will create a state-of-the-art consolidated operations center fully focused on patient acceptance, transport, transfers, capacity and throughput." He added that this consolidation would enable Erlanger to become a true "one call" center for patients, and the regions "only choice" ...
Turkeys continuing economic expansion depends on the diversification of its transport modes and especially on the development of efficient multimodal services. Its role as a hub for Europe, Asia, and the Middle East and as a facilitator of global exchange will be enhanced with a strategy and measures to support a range of intermodal logistic and transport services. This work analyses the current situation and sets forth some of the actions and policies needed to stimulate the development of a truly multimodal transport system.
The Project aims at developing a seamless intermodal goods transport service that will bridge Turkey (Mersin and Izmir) with the Maghreb area through Tunisia (Tunis and Rades). The service will call in the Italian ports of Bari, Brindisi and Taranto. The Project will aim to optimize freight transport, logistics chain and the connection of the different shores of the Mediterranean through offering a high frequency port-to-port Roll-on-Roll-off (Ro-Ro) service. The service will positively contribute to the expansion of trade relations among UfM countries through a combination of Short Sea Shipping with other modes of transport (road and rail). Further, it will enhance the global competitiveness of the Mediterranean while complementing and create synergies with the existing Mediterranean transport system.

Q:How did you get into the temperature controlled distribution sector and what is your role within PDQ?. A: I have been around refrigerated trucks from a very early age for nearly sixty years. My dad had some of the first Thermo King Freezer units in the UK on six wheeler Bedford TKs back in the very early sixties, having contracts with Lyons Maid Ice cream and the United States Airforce. Ive managed to locate a photo of one of these trucks which is proudly displayed on the wall in our office reception area. I want to stress to visitors our depth of experience in temperature controlled distribution. I started my own career as a junior traffic operator for P&O European Transport Services, progressing through the ranks eventually becoming an Area Manager. I then fell out of love with the Transport Industry for a number of years, mainly due to the industrial strife of the early eighties, moving into the catering industry. Of course, when I decided to start a courier business in 1998 I wanted to ...

Unlike the non-CHIP children s medical assistance programs, MC+ for Kids under CHIP does not provide non-emergency medical transportation.. MC+ for Kids Providers. First Health administers Missouri s MC+ for Kids program. Children in three areas of Missouri-Central, Western and Eastern-receive covered services through managed care health plans operating through First Health under contract with the State. Children in thirty counties and the City of St. Louis are covered through a health plan system. The other eighty-four Missouri counties have fee-for-service coverage. Reimbursement rates for providers are set by the State of Missouri. Services for all covered professional services are unavailable or scarce in some areas of the State. According to Greg Vadner, director of Missouri Division of Medical Services, finding providers is a challenge in certain professional specialties. Dental is probably the worst, says Vadner. Reimbursement rates do not always entice dentists to become providers. ...
worked in the Birth Center of my hospital, every birth that wasnt in some way an emergency (that is, the woman showed up at the hospital with or without an ambulance but definitely in labor right that second) was induced. That was just how it went. Women made appointments directly with the hospital (it was my job to wheel them in when they came on their own, and to do some of the basic check-in stuff), the nurses provided most of the care, and then whenever it was time (usually about 12 hours after the non-emergency ones showed up), they were induced. After the birth, they had 12-24 hours to recover (depending on what their health insurance - again, barring emergencies) and I wheeled them back out to their cars, installed the car seat,* and off they went. Usually, during the time they were there a nurse would conduct a breastfeeding class and offer them a line of formula if they didnt want that, or wanted to supplement (we carried everything - soy and non-soy, iron supplemented, extra fat, low ...

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) -- President Bush on Wednesday repeated a warning to the U.S. Senate that he will veto the emergency spending bill currently under debate if it exceeds his request for $92.2 billion plus additional funds related to bird-flu pandemic preparations. The bill, which will fund ongoing military operations in the Middle East and Gulf Coast hurricane relief efforts, has seen the Republican-controlled Senate add billions for additional, non-emergency projects, bringing the total size of the bill to around $109 billion so far. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., has said he would vote to sustain a veto. The House version of the bill hews closer to Bushs $92.2 billion request.. ...
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama hospitals are filling up with patients because of a worsening influenza outbreak. The acting state health officer, Scott Harris, says hospitals in nearly one-third of Alabamas counties are at 90 percent of their patient capacity, and some are full. UAB Hospital is rescheduling non-emergency elective operations to help free up bed space, and its asking visitors to stay away to prevent spreading the flu. Gov. Kay Ivey has issued a flu emergency that gives

The Guardian Alert is used to wirelessly send emergency or non emergency messages to residents. An emergency message emits a loud tone and flashes a red light, followed by the message display on the LCD screen. Then the message is converted to an audible voice message. Non-emergency messages can be delivered without the audible and visual alerting. No wiring is needed, just a standard electrical outlet for power.

Overall, the reasons for medical evacuation were comparable between the military and nonmilitary personnel, although we noted several important differences. The observation that military personnel were more likely to be evacuated with war-related injuries, and nonmilitary members with non-war-related injuries, was not unexpected. What was surprising was that the principal contributor to this disparity was the higher evacuation rates among military personnel than among nonmilitary personnel because of psychiatric diagnoses (9.1% v. 2.1%). This effect was amplified by the fact that military personnel were less likely than nonmilitary members to return to duty after evacuation because of a psychiatric condition.. The other major finding was the higher toll that circulatory conditions and noncardiac chest or abdominal pain exacted on nonmilitary members. In contrast, military personnel evacuated with non-war-related injuries were more likely to have a diagnosis related to musculoskeletal/ spine ...
The nonuniformity of STEMI treatment strategies in the United States contributes to untimely reperfusion therapy and complicates the overall process of STEMI care.6,9 In the current program, the 4-step algorithm provided the STEMI-referral ED physician with standardized pharmacological or mechanical reperfusion options and empowered this physician to activate the process of care at the STEMI-accepting facility without prior cardiologist consultation, a strategy previously demonstrated to reduce reperfusion delays.9 Within the design of the protocol, several important observations were noted. First, despite the primary goal of using interhospital transfer for PPCI, full-dose fibrinolytic therapy was required in ≈10% of this rural patient population. Inclement weather conditions and unanticipated helicopter unavailability contributed to the unexpected interhospital transfer delays, requiring use of an alternative reperfusion strategy. Unlike other transfer PCI programs4 that use controversial ...

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, September 16, 2010 - Diacors Zephyr Patient Transport System is fast becoming an essential tool to safely and accurately move brachytherapy patients during treatment.. Released at the 51st ASTRO meeting in November 2009, the Zephyr Patient Transport System has been evaluated and adopted by treatment facilities in Asia, Europe and North America. These facilities rely on the system to scan and treat patients in the same position and minimize the risks of applicator or needle movement.. The Zephyr Patient Transport System uses air-bearing technology to easily transfer patients laterally and longitudinally from CT couch top to patient stretcher to HDR Brachytherapy table. This minimizes changes in implant geometry during patient transfer.. "In most therapy settings, patients are moved from a CT scanner to an HDR brachytherapy setting multiple times," says Glenn Waterman, president of Diacor. "The Zephyr system maintains consistency of treatment and seed position by minimizing ...
By Kumbirai Nhongo. The civil aviation industry in southern Africa and the rest of the continent is projected to grow exponentially once the Single African Air Transport Market (SAATM) is fully implemented.. A joint meeting of Southern African Development Community (SADC) Ministers responsible for Information Communication Technology (ICT), Transport and Meteorology, held in Windhoek, Namibia on 24-27 September noted that it is possible to attain double-digit growth rates in the aviation sector if the SAATM is operational.. Developing a single air transport market is an African Union (AU) initiative, whose goal is to accelerate the implementation of the 1999 Yamoussoukro Decision, a treaty signed by 44 African countries to provide an open skies policy among Member States.. The full implementation of the Yamoussoukro Decision and the SAATM is expected to reduce aviation costs and make air transport services accessible to a wider population of business and leisure-related travellers..

Background: Recognition that primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is the preferred reperfusion strategy for ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) if delivered in a timely fashion resulted in national efforts successful in reducing time to treatment. To determine whether the decreasing door-to-balloon (DTB) time is associated with a reduction in mortality, we evaluated 12,210 STEMI patients undergoing primary PCI in Massachusetts between 1/2005 and 9/2010.. Methods: We used prospectively collected data compiled, audited, and analyzed by the Massachusetts Data Analysis Center, the state mandated PCI registry.. Results: The mean age of the population was 61.9 years, with 29% women and 6.1% in cardiogenic shock. Between 2005 and 2010, median door-to-balloon time decreased from 85.0 to 67.5 minutes in patients presenting directly to PCI hospitals and from 153.5 to 113.0 minutes in patients requiring inter-hospital transfer for PCI. DTB time ≤90 minutes increased from 56.8% to 77.1% ...

Although female sex and old age are key factors contributing to an inadequate long prehospital delay time, little is known whether women ≥65 years are a particular risk population. Hence, we studied the interaction of sex and age (,65 ...
