According to the Voice of China “CNR News” on September 13, Cardiologist Ge Junbo, academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences said to the media during the 2017 World Internet Of Things Convention that the time between patients with myocardial infarction arriving at the hospital and opening vessels for surgery can be shortened to 30 minutes through Internet of things and standardized treatment. On the 2017 World Internet Of Things Convention from September 10 to September 13, the Internet of things’ application in Smart Healthcare was a highlight.
Ge Junbo said, “Once a myocardial infarction occurs, the first 120 minutes are called golden rescue time. There are thousands of cardiovascular cells in necrosis for every second, so every second matters.” In the Chest Pain Center Exhibition Area for China in AstraZeneca, an electronic display screen showed the real-time location information, electrocardiogram and such indicators as blood oxygen, POCT and myocardial enzyme blood during the patient was hospitalized. Before the patient was delivered to the hospital, the doctor can formulate the treatment plan according to the individual situation.
According to Ge Junbo, the Internet of things can effectively use the pre-hospital first-aid time to improve rescue efficiency in the course of cardiovascular disease emergency. Ge said, “according to international requirements, the time between entering the hospital door to the opening of the vessel should be within 90 minutes for patients with myocardial infarction to minimize the complications. Now many hospitals can make the time 70 minutes. Because of the presence of chest pain center, vessel opening can be conducted within half an hour once the patient arrives at the hospital.” Ge Junbo pointed that, it was found through the analysis of 7,000 cases of patients with myocardial infarction that the death rate of patients with myocardial infarction treated by chest pain center had decreased to 2.9%, while the death rate of those not treated by chest pain center was still about 5%. At present, 276 certified chest pain centers have been set up nationwide, with the goal of 1,000 by 2018.
