While regions with established STEMI and cardiac resuscitation systems of care are a step ahead of the norm in the United States, there is still room for improvement.
Not only does the American Heart Association seek to foster the development of more STEMI and cardiac resuscitation systems, but it also wants to lead the way in helping established systems effectively deliver the optimum level of care. The chart below examines barriers to the ideal STEMI and Cardiac Resuscitation system as well as potential solutions. These barriers and solutions are in addition to the barriers and solutions for STEMI systems listed here.
|BARRIER: Lack of Resources|
|BARRIER: Lack of System Wide Implementation|
