|Variable||Overall (N = 7,098)||Pre-Hospital ECG (n = 1,941)||In-Hospital ECG (n = 5,157)|
|PCI + fibrinolytic||0.6||0.5||0.7|
|No reperfusion therapy||6.2||2.4||7.7|
Data are expressed as percentages except where indicated. The p value comparing the distribution of reperfusion therapy options between pre-hospital versus in-hospital ECG use was <0.001.
ECG = electrocardiogram; PCI = percutaneous coronary intervention.
