Benefits of the Project
How STEMI Has Helped
- This technology is expected to save on resources - It takes time to mobilize the cath lab team, especially after-hours.
- The service is made available through Physio-Control's LIFENET STEMI (ST-segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction) Management Solution system. Hospitals can subscribe to the service made available through Physio-Control, a division of MedTronic.
- No servers or hardware installation is required to use LIFENET. The software enables hospitals to choose to whom and where transmissions are sent.
- In the past, EKG monitors in Paris EMS ambulances were able to transmit readings via phone lines, but it was often a time-consuming and cumbersome process that failed more often than not. Readings sent via fax to the hospital weren't always clear. This system eliminates those problems.
