Dr. Davinder Jassal, Principal Investigator, Cardiovascular Imaging, Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences, cardiologist and Medical Director of WRHA Coronary Care Unit has been in the media explaining ST Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI).
STEMI is a protocol in which heart tracings and other important patient information are transmitted directly from the site – cutting down on transit time while improving the chances of the patient’s survival.
Not every paramedic was trained with STEMI, but now all 533 paramedics on staff have the ability to do so.
