OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate the rate of timely reperfusion for ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) with primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI) in regional STEMI Receiving Center (SRC) networks. BACKGROUND The American College of Cardiology Door-to-Balloon (D2B) Alliance target is a >75% rate of D2B <or=90 min. Independent initiatives nationwide have organized regional SRC networks that coordinate universal access to 9-1-1 with the pre-hospital… CONTINUE READING
