Patients given PCI within 90 minutes of arrival

This measures the percentage of heart attack patients who have a clogged heart artery unblocked within 90 minutes of arriving at the hospital. The technique used to open a clogged artery is called percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). It uses an inflating balloon to widen a blocked heart artery. This is important because a blocked blood supply to the heart can cause lasting damage, and PCI reopens blood flow to the heart.
