Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Acute aortic syndromes are a life-threatening set of conditions that require rapid triage and intervention to obtain satisfactory outcomes. The Methodist Hospital is the first institution to establish an Acute Aortic Treatment Center (AATC) based on a clinical care pathway that expedites the care of acute aortic syndromes. This pathway has resulted in a 64% reduction in time to definitive therapy and a reduction in intensive care unit (ICU) length of stay. Establishment of a multidisciplinary pathway to treat acute aortic syndromes improves efficiency and enhances outcomes.
