The STEMI bypass specifies that transport to a PCI centre ≥60 minutes from patient contact is contraindicated.
First patient contact within our region is defined as first patient contact where a STEMI positive 12-lead can be confirmed. In other words, the 60 minutes window starts with the first STEMI positive ECG.
Note that a local agreement between your service and the PCI center(s) may exist. We invite you to communicate with your service's training team for more information about the STEMI bypass.
