In 2006, the American College of Cardiology began a nation-wide Door-to-Balloon initiative. This ongoing initiative seeks to limit the amount of time between when a patient suffering a heart attack arrives at an Emergency Department and when they receive life-saving angioplasty. Here to tell us more about the initiative and Oakwood’s efforts to limit door-to balloon time is Dr. Abedelrahim Asfour. Dr. Asfour is an Oakwood affiliated physician who specializes in Cardiovascular Disease, Interventional Cardiology and Internal Medicine. He has offices in Dearborn and Flat Rock.
