Determination of Factors that Affect Time to Hospital Presentation in Patients with Symptoms Suggestive of an Acute Myocardial Infarction

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.411
Synopsis: 
Life saving measures for acute myocardial infarction include reperfusion therapy. There have been international studies done looking at factors contributing to prehospital delay in patients with such an event. This study looks factors that contribute to delays in a Jamaican University hospital population.

ABSTRACT

Objective:  To determine the factors that affect time to hospital presentation in persons with symptoms suggestive of an acute myocardial infarction.

Methods: A cross-sectional study was done at the emergency department at the University Hospital of the West Indies, Kingston Jamaica. One hundred and fifty persons whopresented with symptoms suggestive of an AMI and were later diagnosed as such were analyzed.

The Age-Specific Incidence of Admission to the Intensive Care Unit for Acute Myocardial Infarction in Antigua and Barbuda

Issue: 
Pages: 
326–9
Synopsis: 
Coronary artery disease is increasing in developing countries as western lifestyles are adopted. Between 1990 and 2001, 250 patients were admitted to rule out myocardial infarction in Antigua, 55% were confirmed. Based on available population figures, the incidence of hospitalization was 0.73 per year per 1000 men and 0.24 per year per 1000 women age 35 to 74 years in Antigua. This rate is less than 20% of the rate for the United States of America.
