Ambulance Use for Time-Sensitive Conditions: Stroke and Heart Attack

Strokes and heart attacks are time-sensitive conditions where timely care may prevent mortality or significant morbidity. Recommendations across Canada encourage anyone with signs of stroke or heart attack to call an ambulance. Paramedics can assess and manage the patient, pre-notify the hospital and transport the patient to the hospital best equipped to treat him or her. This analysis reports the percentage of stroke and heart attack patients who arrive at the hospital by ambulancei and describes characteristics of patients who do not use an ambulance.
