Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
intervention group
patients presented with acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction and received emergency cardiac catheterization between March 1, 2007 and Oct. 31, 2007
Other: acute myocardial infarction checklist
For every patient fulfilling the criteria of enrollment, an acute myocardial infarction checklist was incorporated into the patient's medical records at emergency department immediately after a diagnosis of acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction was made. All the time sequences concerning different managements at different locations were recorded by nurses and/or physicians as instructions on the checklist.
control group
patients presented with acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction and received emergency cardiac catheterization between April 1, 2006 and Feb. 28, 2007



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. median door-to-balloon time [ Time Frame: at cath. lab ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. in-hospital mortality [ Time Frame: at hospital discharge ]
