    To look into pertinent factors and patients who had been admitted with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) during the week and on the weekends. Method: Retrospective population-based study from 2021 to 2022 among patients with the first AMI total of 1500, the weekday group of 987, and the weekend group of 513, with no statistically significant differences in the other variables such as emergency, hospital level, hospital ownership, and urban-rural gap. In addition, this study analyzed these samples by identifying outcome differences between those admitted on weekdays and weekends after they received tissue plasminogen activator (TPA) treatment, percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA), or a coronary artery bypass graft (CABG). No significant difference in average hospitalization fees or average length of stay was observed between weekdays and weekends. A significant difference in admission was observed between the weekday and weekend samples (P<.001). In conclusion, expanding the use of EMS for patients with suspected MI in the current era of acute reperfusion may present a significant opportunity for public health advancement
