Cardiac alert a change in process results of a stemi treatment protocol over 5 years

Optimal care in the time critical process of treating STEMI requires a coordinated protocol with EMS, ED and Cardiology functioning as one team


Cardiac alert a change in process results of a stemi treatment protocol over 5 years

Maintaining optimal quality over time requires continual monitoring and evaluation of data related to the team’s effectiveness.

Coroner says patient s death is a homicide woman sought care in er for 2 hours

Coroner says patient's death is a homicideWoman sought care in ER for 2 hours

By Andrew L. WangTribune staff reporterPublished September 15, 2006

The death of a Waukegan woman in July after she spent nearly two hours in an emergency room waiting area was ruled a homicide Thursday during a Lake County coroner's inquest.


Acc aha guidelines

ACC/AHA guidelines

  • Door to intervention time 90 (120 min).

  • National Average 100-110 minutes.

  • Advocate Good Samaritan 2002: 99 min.

  • Advocate Good Samaritan 2006: 63 min.


Decreasing d2b time why should we care

Decreasing D2B Time: Why Should We Care?

  • 400,000 STEMI per year

  • 1/3 STEMI patients receive no reperfusion therapy

  • Less than 40% patients receiving primary PCI have D2B < 90 minutes

  • Less than 10% EMS systems have 12 lead ECG capability

    • Circulation 2006;113;2152-2163


Time is muscle and mortality

Time is Muscle! And Mortality!

  • Each 30 minute delay in reperfusion with PCI increases 1 yr mortality 7.5%

  • Door to balloon <60 min, 1% 30 day mortality; Door to balloon >90 min, 6.4% mortality

  • DeLuca, Circulation 2004;109:1223-1225.

  • Berger, Circulation 1999;100:14-20.

Cardiac alert protocol

CARDIAC ALERT PROTOCOL

  • “Individual commitment to a group effort- that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.”

    Vince Lombardi

Cardiac alert goal

Cardiac Alert Goal

  • Door to Balloon < 60 minutes

  • Best Mortality

  • Achievable Goal


Goal for acute mi patients

Goal for Acute MI Patients

  • Diagnostic ECG performed, interpreted and cardiologist/ cath lab notified – 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Cath Lab/Interventionalist notified, patient on table -30 minutes.

  • Prep- 5 minutes.

  • Angiogram, first inflation -15 minutes.


Goal for acute mi patients1

Goal for Acute MI Patients

  • 60 Minutes

    • From ED admission to Cardiac Intervention

    • 29 September 2003 “Go-Live” Date for Cardiac Alert


Cardiac alert using data to implement change

Cardiac Alert: Using Data to Implement Change

  • Map the process

  • Standardize time

  • Gather accurate baseline data

  • Evaluate the data

  • Make changes based on the data


Cardiac alert improving door to balloon time

Cardiac Alert:Improving Door to Balloon Time

  • Process driven approach to a time sensitive issue

  • Team approach

  • It’s Not All About Me!


Cardiac alert guiding principles

Cardiac Alert: Guiding Principles

  • EMS/Triage RN empowered and educated to initiate call

  • Immediate ECG with immediate review

    • Any chest pain over age 30

  • Single call activates Alert – ECG, Cath Lab, Blood Lab, Radiology

  • Each individual role defined

  • Data with feedback


Ground rules

Ground Rules

  • Paramedics and triage nurses will be educated, never criticized for initiating Cardiac Alert.

  • Cardiologists will not fault ED for calling Cardiac Alert.

  • ED will decide cardiologist for unattached pts.

  • Cardiologists will not fault ED docs for occasional errors in cardiologist selection.

  • Physicians will lead by example.

D2b data left shift

D2B Data: Left Shift

  • Eliminate lag time

  • Decrease outliers


Baseline data

Baseline Data

  • Prospectively established case criteria

    • ST elevation on first ECG – 1cardiologist and 1 ED MD should agree

    • Patient admitted through the ED

  • Start with ~3 months of data (25% of a year)

  • Outliers were not omitted

  • Data was shared with the team, Emergency Department and Cardiology

Admission time is minute zero. All times are in minutes.

Time from Cardiologist notification to patient on Cath Lab table (cont)

One reason for time increase:


Symptom recognition symptom to door often 2 1 2 hours

Symptom Recognition : Symptom to Door often >2 1/2 Hours

  • Chest tightness/pressure

  • Radiation to arm/ neck/ jaw.

  • Dyspnea

  • Diaphoresis

  • Atypical symptoms often (diabetics, women)

Evidence based changes create immediate benefits

Evidence Based Changes Create Immediate Benefits

  • Cath Lab is called earlier in the process

    • 8 minute savings

  • Cardiologist will accept ED MD’s initial assessment

    • 11 minute savings

  • We will listen to EMS

    • 7 minute savings

  • For efficiency: one call will initiate new process

    • Hospital operator is the central communication point

    • Cardiac Catheterization Lab is notified by this call

  • We will use all errors as a learning opportunity

    • Physician Leaders role model appropriate behavior


Outliers

“Outliers”

  • Definition specific to institution/staff

  • Do not omit outliers

  • Identifies the cracks in your process

  • Analyze each case

  • Trend outliers

  • Example: “atypical symptoms”

    • Triage nurse was pre-diagnosing the patient

    • ED physicians provided education to nursing staff

    • “Cannot assume GI, pulmonary or musculoskeletal origin of pain without ECG”


D2b alliance evidence bases strategies

D2B Alliance:Evidence Bases Strategies

  • ED physician activates the cath lab;

  • One call activates the cath lab;

  • Cath lab team ready in 20-30 minutes;

  • Prompt data feedback;

  • Senior management commitment;

  • Team based approach.


Conclusions

Conclusions

  • Effective treatment of patients with STEMI is a time sensitive process requiring a well defined team approach.

  • Ongoing data collection and analysis with feedback allows for changes in process that improve care in patients with STEMI.

  • The role of the cardiologist in this process is not simply that of technician. We must now be team leaders as well.

  • D2B of 60 minutes or less is an achievable goal likely to improve mortality in STEMI.
