From: Pre-hospital delay in patients with first time myocardial infarction: an observational study in a northern Swedish population

  1. All data are given in hours. Total pre-hospital delay is the time between onset of symptoms suggestive of myocardial infarction and admission to the hospital. Decision time is the time between onset of symptoms suggestive of myocardial infarction and the call to Emergency Medical Services. Transport time is the time between the call to Emergency Medical Services and admission to the hospital. aCalculated for 200/203 patients transported to the hospital by ambulance
