The purpose of this retrospective chart-review study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a 10,000 unit unfractionated heparin bolus in the emergency department prior to PCI. • The primary objective was percentage of ACT values within goal range of 250-300 seconds. • Secondary objectives included major bleeding rate, weight-based UFH bolus dose in comparison to guideline recommended bolus dose, percentage of initial ACT values within goal range, protamine use, and need for additional UFH boluses.
