Answer

The AHA guidelines advocate for a systems-of-care approach involving a reperfusion team that mobilizes hospital resources for an optimized approach. The guidelines argue that when such a system is active either in the ED or based on prehospital data, time-sensitive therapies can be offered more rapidly. [43]
