Every second heart attack patient in India takes more than 400 minutes to reach a hospital, which is almost 13 times more than the ideal window of 30 minutes, government data shows.
A lot of time is wasted in arrival of ambulances from hospitals, and we are not able to use the cars nearby.
A two-year data from the ongoing Management of Acute Coronary Event (MACE) Registry of the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) shows at some places it even takes 900 minutes as a lot of time is wasted in transportation.
All those who need an ambulance in case of medical emergency.
