ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a diabetes delays, hospital arrival, and emergency management of acute coronary syndromes (ACS). Diabetes is a major determinant of risk in ACS. It is also associated with altered pain perception that may distort symptoms and delay diagnosis. This study has shown that diabetic patients with ACS not only take longer after the onset of chest pain to present to hospital but, having arrived, are treated with less urgency as reflected by door-to-needle times 32% longer than in patients without diabetes.
