Chinese Army Established the First Chest Pain Rescue Network in China by Using IVT mHealth System
Date:3/26/2011

GUANGZHOU, China, March 27, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Guangzhou General Hospital of Peoples Liberation Army (PLA) made a landmark announcement that the first Chinese regional military and civilian coordinated Chest Pain Rescue Network using IVT mobile health (mHealth) system is now in full operation. This network consists of a Chest Pain Rescue Center and a Remote Electrocardiograph (ECG) Diagnostic Center run by Guangzhou General Hospital of PLA, Guangzhou Civilian Emergency Center (120), several regional civilian hospitals and community health service centers in Guangzhou and its vicinity. The network will gradually enlarge its coverage to the whole Pearl River Delta in China.

Professor Weiyi Qin, the director of Chest Pain Center, said, "Today, we historically rewrite the Chinese chest pain rescue clinical pathway; we dramatically shorten the chest pain pre-hospital rescue time by 30 minutes on average, achieving 41 minutes of the door to balloon open time (D2B), which is half of the international standard time (90 minutes); and we invent a new model of establishing the chest pain rescue network with collaborations between military and civilian hospitals in China!"

The coordination of the Chest Pain Rescue Network is achieved by using IVT mHealth system. Vital signs on each site are collected by a 12-leads ECG monitor, an arm-based blood pressure meter, an oximeter, and a glucose meter, all wirelessly connected to a medical tablet PC, and transmitted via 3G network in real time to the on-line Personal E-Health Record in the Chest Pain Rescue Center, where information is shared by all parties in the Chest Pain Rescue Network. These medical devices are small and can be hand carried to any rescue site for military and civilian usage.

Experts in the Chest Pain Rescue Center could provide real time support to staff on the remote rescue site, and activate a rescue coordination support system in IVT mHealth system, with just one click to send short messages to all related parties inside the General Hospital, such as the radiology department, ultrasound room, clinical laboratory, cardiologic medicine, cardiac surgery, and emergency department to prepare operations before a patient's arrival. Even some preparation for operations can be done in the ambulance on the way back.
