Rural Patient Access to Primary Percutaneous Coronary Intervention Centers is Improved by a Novel In

As per American Heart Association/American College of Cardiology guidelines, the delay between first medical contact and balloon inflation should not exceed 90 min for primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). In North America, few prehospital systems have been developed to grant rural populations timely access to PCI. Objectives: The objective of the present study was to evaluate the ability of an ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) system serving suburban and rural populations to achieve the recommended 90-min interval benchmark for PCI.
