Cardiac resuscitation can make a lifesaving difference.
Seventy percent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest patients have identified coronary vascular disease, and 50 percent have STEMI.
Without prompt cardiac resuscitation, many of the STEMI patients who could potentially benefit from a coordinated STEMI system of care might not survive long enough to enter the system.
That makes cardiac resuscitation a vital component in STEMI systems of care, as well as a key intervention across the full spectrum of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. For that reason, Mission: Lifeline® now offers established STEMI systems of care the opportunity to incorporate cardiac resuscitation.
