Variation in Hospital Door to Intervention Time for Ruptured AAAs and its Impact on Outcomes.

Summary of "Variation in Hospital Door to Intervention Time for Ruptured AAAs and its Impact on Outcomes."

A ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (rAAA) is a life threatening condition which carries a high mortality rate. Recent guidelines have recommended a goal "door-to-intervention" time of ≤90 minutes despite a paucity of evidence to support this goal. The aim of this study was to analyze recent trends in door-to-intervention time for rAAAs and determine the effect of the 90 minute door-to-intervention benchmark on postoperative complications.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A study that uses observations at multiple time points before and after an intervention (the "interruption"), in an attempt to detect whether the intervention has had an effect significantly greater than any underlying trend over time.

Persons with any degree of loss of hearing that has an impact on their activities of daily living or that requires special assistance or intervention.

Persons with any degree of loss of hearing that has an impact on their activities of daily living or that requires special assistance or intervention.

The tearing or bursting of the weakened wall of the aneurysmal sac, usually heralded by sudden worsening pain. The great danger of a ruptured aneurysm is the large amount of blood spilling into the surrounding tissues and cavities, causing HEMORRHAGIC SHOCK.

The expenses incurred by a hospital in providing care. The hospital costs attributed to a particular patient care episode include the direct costs plus an appropriate proportion of the overhead for administration, personnel, building maintenance, equipment, etc. Hospital costs are one of the factors which determine HOSPITAL CHARGES (the price the hospital sets for its services).
