For the patient suffering from myocardial infarction or stroke, immediate medical help is crucial. The speedy arrival of the EMS staff to a patient‘s location is critically important, but so is the immediate transportation to the nearest cardiocenter or neurological center with the goal of performing a special procedure with aim to open blocked heart or brain artery. At present, big proportion of patients is not directly admitted to specialised centers in medically accepted time limit. There‘s still a limited ability among paramedics to establish myocardial infarction or stroke diagnosis while on location with the patient, and many times the patients is transferred to the nearest local hospital where the diagnosis is established and secondary transportation to specialised center is arranged. This secondary transportation to a specialised center causes delay that could be harmful to the patient.
The communication technology STEMI enables immediate voice and picture consultation regarding a 12 lead ECG or stroke card with a specialist, cardiologist or neurologist, in the nearest specialised center. If the diagnosis is remotely confirmed, the patient is then transported directly to the center and appropriate treatment procedure with no time delay could be performed. The mobile application STEMI can save the life of your patient.
Increases the ratio of initial transports directly to a specialised cardio-center or stroke-center
Decreases the number of false activations of the STEMI team or stroke team
Saves miles for the paramedics and increases EMS efficency
Enables the cardio-center or stroke-center to monitor the paramedic’s position in the map and estimated time of arrival
Shortens the total ischemic interval for a patient with myocardial infarction or stroke
