The Acute Coronary Syndrome Study (ACS)
Recruitment status was: Recruiting
The investigators will make a prospective study in which they will look at the economics and security of the treatment of patients with acute coronary syndrome.
The investigators want to do a randomized trial. One group will be treated as they have been treated at Ullevål University Hospital (UUS) in recent years, and the other group will be returned to their refering hospital the same day. The objective of this study will be to provide increased knowledge about whether the rapid discharge from the intervention center is associated with differences in costs or security.
|Acute Coronary Syndrome||Other: Early discharge Other: Care as usual. No intervention. (Control group)|
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Health Services Research
|Official Title:||The Acute Coronary Syndrome Study. Organization and Treatment of Patients With Acute Coronary Syndrome, With a Focus on Costs, Organization and Security|
- Cost effectiveness. Adverse medical events [ Time Frame: 30 days and a year's events ]
- SF-36 [ Time Frame: One year ]
|Study Start Date:||February 2009|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||May 2013|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||June 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Experimental: Group 1 Fast Track Group
The patients are discharged the same day after coronary angiography to the refering Hospital
Other: Early discharge
The patients are discharged the same day as coronary angiography.
Active Comparator: Group 2: Ordinary care
Ordinary Cardiology care in the Intervention hospital
Other: Care as usual. No intervention. (Control group)
The patients are admitted and cared as usual in cardiology ward.
The topic of this study is whether patients with Acute coronary syndrome (ACS)may can be transferred to their refering hospital same day that they arrived intervention hospital.
This is to see if one can reduce the hospital stay and costs for the intervention center, and the total hospitalization time.
and this rapid transport not give more medical complications
Our 1 hypothesis is that patients with ACS, who are transported back to the refering hospital the same day, will reduce the length of stay in intervention center without an increase for the stay at the refering hospital.
Our 2 hypothesis is that patients with ACS, who are transported back to the refering hospital the same day as the treatment is performed, have no more complications than those who stay overnight in the intervention hospital.
