A Study on Coronary Intervention Door-to-balloon Time and Myocardial Infarction Outcomes: Quantitative Evidence Synthesis and Patient-level Data Analysis

posted on 2019-08-26, 00:30 authored by CHEE YOONG FOO
This thesis examines how in-hospital delay in coronary intervention may impact the outcomes among those who suffer from severe heart attacks. It identifies the non-linear effect of such delay on patient outcomes and pointed to areas where improvement may have the most impact. The works in the thesis also provide a glance on this dimension of care in Malaysia and offer the opportunity to critically reflect on the complex issues around the current states of coronary intervention timeliness under a developing country setting.
