  • Overview

    Not all hospitals are equipped with staff or equipment to perform percutaneous coronary intervention on an emergency basis. However, in an emergency situation, critical decisions must be made: Take a patient to the nearest medical center that can provide fibrinoloysis or take the extra time to get them to a medical center who can perform PCI. What are the current protocols in place to make this often times life/death decision? Join host, Dr. Larry Kaskel talk with Dr. Tim Henry, Director of Research at the Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation about his recent paper entitled, 'Design of a Standardized System For Transfer of Patients with ST-elevation Myocardial Infarction for Percutaneous Coronary Intervention.'
