Further study details as provided by Far Eastern Memorial Hospital:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • median door-to-balloon time [ Time Frame: at cath. lab ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • in-hospital mortality [ Time Frame: at hospital discharge ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 213
Study Start Date: April 2006
Study Completion Date: December 2007
Primary Completion Date: October 2007 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
intervention group
patients presented with acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction and received emergency cardiac catheterization between March 1, 2007 and Oct. 31, 2007
Other: acute myocardial infarction checklist
For every patient fulfilling the criteria of enrollment, an acute myocardial infarction checklist was incorporated into the patient's medical records at emergency department immediately after a diagnosis of acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction was made. All the time sequences concerning different managements at different locations were recorded by nurses and/or physicians as instructions on the checklist.
control group
patients presented with acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction and received emergency cardiac catheterization between April 1, 2006 and Feb. 28, 2007

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population

All patients with diagnostic criteria of acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction who were preparing for emergency cardiac catheterization

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • all patients who presented to the emergency department of Far Eastern Memorial Hospital within 12 hours of the onset of ischemic chest pain
  • patients with diagnostic criteria of acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction on electrocardiogram, e.g. at least 0.1 mV in two or more contiguous electrocardiographic leads or a new onset of bundle branch block
  • patients were preparing for emergency cardiac catheterization

Exclusion Criteria:

  • patients who did not fulfill the diagnostic criteria of acute myocardial infarction on electrocardiogram
  • patients who were not eligible for cardiac catheterization
  • patients who refused cardiac catheterization
  • patients who suffered from acute myocardial infarction after admission to ward or intensive care unit for any reason
  • patients who had an ambiguous diagnosis that the decision of emergency cardiac catheterization was made after admission to ward or intensive care unit
