The ACC/AHA recommends a door to balloon interval of no more than 90 minutes. Door to balloon time measurement in emergency cardiac care starts when patients reach the hospital’s ER door and ends when the catheter guidewire crosses the culprit lesion and the balloon is deployed in the cardiac cath lab. Baton Rouge General’s median door to balloon time for qualified heart attack patients is 65 minutes – on par with the national median. “In cardiac care ‘time is muscle’ – delays in AMI treatment increase the likelihood and amount of cardiac muscle damage. The streamlined process among multiple clinicians from ER staff to the cardiac care team members is critical for optimal patient outcomes,” said Steven Kelley, MD, Baton Rouge General Chief of Cardiology. “Congratulations to our physicians, nurses and medical staff for their exceptional teamwork and exceeding national quality standards in heart care.” A recent BRG heart patient whose exceptional door to balloon time of 47 minutes was the feature of a recent WAFB Channel 9 news story.
