OVERVIEW


OUR MISSION

The Stent – Save a Life Initiative aims to improve access to guideline complying therapy and the lifesaving indication of primary percutaneous coronary intervention (p-PCI), thereby reducing mortality and morbidity in patients suffering from acute myocardial infarction (AMI).


OUR PURPOSE

The Stent – Save a Life Initiative is a unique platform for interventional cardiologists, government representatives, industry partners, patient groups along with patients themselves, to work together to help shape health care systems and medical practices as well as ensure that all ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients have equal access to guideline complying therapy and, wherever possible, to the lifesaving indication of p-PCI.


OUR AIMS

The Stent – Save a Life Initiative has two key objectives to be accomplished:

  1. Define the regions and countries with an unmet medical need in the optimal treatment of AMI
  2. Implement an action program to increase patient access to guideline complying therapy and to p-PCI where indicated

The purpose of the Stent – Save a Life Initiative is to:

  • Support the implementation of current guidelines on management of acute myocardial infarction
  • Help identify specific barriers to the implementation of guidelines for these patients in the regional healthcare systems
  • Define actions to make sure that, as many STEMI patients as possible, finally gain access to guideline complying therapy and to significantly increase the availability of p-PCI

The Stent – Save a Life Initiative has two key objectives to be accomplished:

  1. Define the regions and countries with an unmet medical need in the optimal treatment of AMI
  2. Implement an action program to increase patient access to guideline complying therapy and to p-PCI where indicated

We are working to:

  • Significantly decrease the rates of patients suffering from an AMI with no access to guideline complying treatment
  • Offer a 24/7 STEMI service at medical facilities to fully cover the regional needs
  • Increase the use of p-PCI among all STEMI patients wherever possible
