According to Dr. Peter Kerwin, "There are studies that show that every 30 minute delay that you wait while having a heart attack increases the one-year mortality rate by 7.5 percent."
Dr. Peter Kerwin, Medical Director of the Cardiac Catheterization Lab and Colleen Kordish, RN, Cardiovascular Outcomes Coordinator, were instrumental in developing the "Cardiac Alert" program at Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital, with the partnership of local EMS officials.
Dr. Kerwin suggests, "Unless a patient absolutely knows that their symptoms are from something else, they should not spend a lot of time trying to figure it out.Come in to be seen by a professional where medical personnel and advanced technology can determine the cause of symptoms."According to an article in JAMA, printed August 17, 2005 (1), "Understanding how door-to-drug and door-to-balloon times vary by time of day and day of week can inform the design of interventions to improve the timeliness of reperfusion therapy."
JAMA Averages from 2005 article printing results of a study: Average "Door to Balloon" time: 106 Minutes Average "Door to Balloon" time during regular hours (7 a.m. to 5 p.m.): 94.8 Minutes Average "Door to Balloon" time off hours (5 p.m. to 7 a.m.): 116.1 Minutes
