Abstract

Based on data from overseas and local case modelling, Rural Ambulance Victoria (RAV) implemented a pilot study of prehospital thrombolysis (PHT) for patients with ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI) in the Bendigo region. The purpose of this report is to provide the background to the pilot, describe the PHT model, report the outcome of the single enrolled case and discuss various barriers to PHT implementation.
