A message from the Cardiovascular Research Institute in Dublin    

This research study is in no way connected to the Irish Heart Foundation.

Researchers at the Cardiovascular Research Institute Dublin are undertaking an observational study examining the outcomes of patients who are treated emergently for serious heart attacks in Ireland.

This study is being conducted in conjunction with the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. Researchers want to know whether the type of emergency treatment delivered, and time delay before treatment delivery, are associated with a difference in long-term outcomes. They are also assessing whether the distance patients live from the nearest emergency heart attack specialist hospital is associated with any difference in the outcome.

The source of their data is the Irish national heart attack (Acute Coronary Syndrome, ACS) registry which was set up in 2013.

Identifying patient data is being briefly accessed to perform this study. Researchers are using as little data for as little time as is possible. No identifying data will be recorded or published. Patients have no obligation to allow their personal data to be used for research purposes. Patients have the right to request that their data be omitted or withdrawn from the study.

If you have been treated as an emergency for a heart attack since 2013 and would like to know more, please contact Jack Laffan at email jacklaffan@rcsi.com
