Association of door-to-balloon time
and mortality in patients admitted to hospital with ST elevation myocardial infarction: national cohort study.
Maintaining our outstanding door-to-balloon times
requires expeditious movement of the patient from the emergency department to the catheterization lab.
What's truly amazing is that the 15 to 20 minute improvement in door-to-balloon time
will decrease the overall death rates of these patients.
2% of transferred patients had a door-to-balloon time
of 120 minutes or less, as recommended in earlier AHA/ACC guidelines.
Krumholz, chair of the Guidelines Applied in Practice-Door-to-Balloon (GAP-D2B) Working Group, said he knows of hospitals that have gotten their door-to-balloon times
down into the 60- to 70-minute range using the key strategies promoted in the GAP-D2B campaign.
The center performs a wide range of coronary and peripheral interventional procedures, The center 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.
Programs include Decompensated Heart Failure, Sepsis, Stroke, Central Line Management, Door-to-Balloon Time
, Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia and Moderate Sedation.
The median door-to-balloon time
for patients arriving via the ED was 123 minutes and was 69 minutes for those arriving via 911 calls.
For LUMEN 2009, I have sought the knowledge of world experts to create a robust CME program -- four luminary co-directors, each a respective giant in interventional cardiology, door-to-balloon time
processes, emergency medicine, thrombectomy and cardiovascular nursing.
LUMEN 2010's innovative CME agenda includes lectures, debates, workshops, certification courses, and meaningful industry participation focusing on four key aspects of STEMI care: interventional cardiology (Samin Sharma, MD), door-to-balloon time
processes (Charanjit Rihal, MD), emergency medicine (Ivan Rokos, MD), and cardiovascular nursing (Barbara Unger, RN).

Since implementing the Code 60 program, the hospital has achieved exceptional results: while the American Heart Association sets the national door-to-balloon time
standard at 90-120 minutes, Hoag now averages just 47 minutes to restore blood flow to a patient's heart muscle.
Joseph has halved the typical door-to-balloon time
from about 120 minutes to less than 60 minutes while doubling the number of patients treated.
ACC guidelines set the gold standard for door-to-balloon time
at 90 minutes or less.
reduced their door-to-balloon time
from 84 minutes in January 2007 to 69 minutes in January 2008.
