Door to Balloon

The Door to Balloon (D2B) Initiative launched in 2006 with the goal of improving the timeliness of reperfusion therapy for patients with heart attacks by facilitating the adoption of evidence and guideline-based best practices.

With the success of hospitals in reducing “door to balloon” times, a new program called “D2B: Sustain the Gain” was launched to support hospitals continuing to implement the strategies necessary to maintain the gains they made in reducing D2B times.
