Prehospital delay, electrocardiography time, and first visit time respectively were 270, 6.59 and 8.45 minute, generally, the door-to- needle time was more than three times the global standard. Prehospital delay with gender, history of diabetes and high blood pressure, education level, and history of percutaneous coronary intervention(PCI) were significant (p <0.005).
Conclusion: Considering the global standard time only 7% of patients had received the drug in the standard range and according to the opinions of the experts and the treatment team, the definition of the MI code in the hospital and the creation of conditions for the fibrinolytic therapy in the emergency room and conducting monthly meetings with all members of the team, from guard to doctor, as understanding the importance of time in treating heart patients can be effective in improving conditions.
