TIME is of paramount importance in all walks of our life. In case of our heart, it becomes even more significant as it is a matter of life and death. On the very first day of my training in cardiology, I was made to recite the phrase: "Time is myocardium". We as cardiologists, are told to imbibe and follow this dictum for the rest of our lives. We are also told to stay close to the hospital, so that when a patient is in need, the treatment isn't delayed.
