Randomized Trial of Prehospital Tropin Levels in Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS)
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Condition||acute coronary syndrome|
|Sponsor||Redmond Fire Department Medic One|
|Collaborator||Medic One Foundation|
|Start date||November 2006|
|End date||November 2009|
|Trial size||1200 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT00764205, 20070224|
This study randomizes patients seen by Redmond Medic One into a control arm and a study arm when they present with acute coronary syndrome and have non-contributory ECG's (i.e.non-STEMI). The control group is treated normally and delivered to the receiving hospital. The study group is treated normally as well, however troponin measurements are made using an i-STAT blood analyzer prior to hospital arrival. The results are presented to the receiving physician. Door-to-reperfusion time is monitored for both groups.
|Observational model||case control|
Troponin measured prior to hospital arrival
Patients transported to hospital without troponin measurements enroute
Decrease door-to-reperfusion time for patients with non-STEMI's by measuring troponin levels prior to hospital arrival
time frame: 3-4 years
Male or female participants at least 18 years old.
Inclusion Criteria: - Over years of age - ACS without ST-segment elevation - Patient being transported to one of two participating hospitals Exclusion Criteria: - Less then 18 years of age. - Post cardiac arrest. - ACS with ST-segment elevation.
|Official title||Randomized Trial of Prehospital Troponin Assessment Using the i-STAT Blood Analyzer|
