Abstract

Assessing trends in admissions for acute coronary syndromes - in England and Wales there has been a greater than 50% reduction in emergency department attendances for myocardial ischaemia since the start of the pandemic. Several UK cardiologists have reported a substantial reduction in demand for coronary procedures. In order to understand the scale, nature and duration of changes to admissions for different types of acute coronary syndromes, and to evaluate whether the in-hospital management of these patients was also affected as a result of the pandemic, the project will analyse data on all such admissions to NHS acute hospital Trusts in England using the Secondary Uses Service Admitted Patient Care (SUSAPC) database.
