Sammanfattning : We evaluated, in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) treated with thrombolytics, admission Troponin T (tnT), ST-segment resolution and admission N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) for early risk stratification as well as time delays and outcome in real life patients according to prehospital or in-hospital thrombolytic treatment. Also, baseline characteristics, treatments and outcome in patients enrolled in the ASSENT-2 trial in Sweden and in patients not enrolled were evaluated. LÄS MER
2. Influence of The Education and Training of Prehospital Medical Crews on Measures of Performance and Patient Outcomes
Sammanfattning : Prehospital care has developed dramatically the last decades with the implementation of new devices and educational concepts. Clinical decisions and treatments have moved out from the hospitals to the prehospital setting. In Sweden this has been accompanied by an increase in the level of competence, i.e. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Treatment of acute ischemic stroke is time critical and early initiated reperfusion treatment increases the chances of good recovery. However, in 2007, only 3% of ischemic stroke patients were treated with thrombolysis in Sweden. Patients’ late arrival to hospital was considered to be one of the reasons for the low treatment rate.

Sammanfattning : Efficacy of thrombolytic therapy among patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction is time dependent. The earlier treatment can be started the more powerful are the effects on reducing infarct size, preservation of ventricular function and reducing long and short-term mortality. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : BACKGROUND: Owing to an epidemiological transition observed throughout Sub- Saharan Africa, South Africa is experiencing an increase in the incidence of myocardial infarction. ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) occurs commonly in South Africa and at much younger ages than observed elsewhere in the world. LÄS MER
