Average Door to Balloon Time
Time is critical during a heart attack. The national standard for opening a blocked coronary artery – called the “door to balloon time” or D2B – is 90 minutes.
King’s Daughters Code: Heart program meets this standard consistently. Our average D2B is just 52 minutes, well below the national benchmark.
Not only that, we achieve the 90-minute standard for 95 percent of all patients who come to us for balloon angioplasty, including time spent at other hospitals before transfer to KDMC.
We are so successful because we take heart care seriously.
