The door-to-balloon times frequently exceed the recommended delay. We therefore evaluated the performance of a novel "physician-less" cardiac catheterization laboratory (CCL) activation system relying on the automated electrocardiographic diagnosis alone. From January 2010 to 2012, first responders performed electrocardiograms in the field for all patients with a complaint of chest pain or dyspnea. An automated machine diagnosis of "acute myocardial infarction" resulted in immediate CCL… CONTINUE READING
