Title: Dedicated heart attack treatment center reduces door to needle time in acute myocardial infarction- A single centre study in Northeastern India


Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS), Registry in northern India showed an additional one hour delay of Door to Needle Time (DNT), in the initiation of thrombolytic therapy for acute ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI) increases the hazard ratio of death by 20%. A retrospective observational study  of 75 patients with acute STEMI treated at the Dedicated Heart Attack Centre (HAC) of SKY Hospital and Research Center, Imphal, India between January 2018 and February 2020 showed a reduction of DNT and an improvement of 30 minutes thrombolysis time to 76% from 35.6% where such dedicated HAC is unavailable.
