Irish Heart Attack Audit national report 2021
The Irish Heart Attack Audit National Report 2021 includes data from 1,491 patients with an ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) who received treatment in a percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) centre during 2021. STEMI was more common in males (n=1154, 77%), with females presenting at an older median age (67 years versus 61 years in males) and with a higher burden of comorbidities. The data provide detailed information about the care, processes and outcomes received by patients with a STEMI, and enable each participating hospital to benchmark itself against comparable hospitals in Ireland. The quality of care delivered is measured against national and international key quality indicators (KQIs), and opportunities for quality improvement (QI) are identified.
