New Heart Attack EKG Technology Begins with 911

Heart attack patients can now receive the latest advancement in heart attack treatments: Minutes after receiving a 911 call, arriving on the scene and assessing a patient's heart attack symptoms, a paramedic can transmit the heart attack patient's EKG from the ambulance to the emergency room--before the patient arrives, saving precious time. At a certified chest pain center like El Camino Hospital's, a cardiac team can administer an emergency angioplasty procedure or a heart catheterization, resulting in a possible stent deployment, thereby aborting the heart attack.
