Abstract [en]

The early phase in suspected acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is particularly critical. More than 50% of deaths from coronary artery disease occur outside the hospital mainly due to ventricular fibrillation.1 Recent experiences strongly indicate that early intervention with thrombolysis2–4 and β blockers5,6 can limit myocardial damage and thereby improve prognosis. Delay times in suspected AMI have remained stable over the years. Therefore, a media campaign was started in the urban area of Göteborg, Sweden, with the intention to shorten delay times and to increase ambulance use in patients with suspected AMI.
