Paris EMS and The Heart Hospital of Paris Expedite Cardiac Care
Paris EMS has partnered with The Heart Hospital
, a branch of Paris Regional Medical Center
to offer new technology that expedites care for heart-attack patients.
Paris EMS paramedics are now able to wirelessly transmit patients' EKG readings from the field to the emergency room or directly to the on-call cardiologist to determine if an angioplasty or cardiac catherization procedure is necessary.
This early reading has dramatically reduced the "door-to-balloon time" at The Heart Hospital since they came online with this technology.
