Medical City Hospital Partners With Dallas Fire-Rescue to Outfit First Mobile Units in Dallas County With Advanced EKG Technology
Date:4/30/2010

DALLAS, April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- A partnership announced today between Medical City Hospital and Dallas Fire-Rescue (DFR) now provides Dallas residents with the benefit of potential life-saving technology, as Medical City recently helped outfit all DFR rescue units with state-of-the-art LIFENET STEMI Management Solution cardiac alert devices.

The LIFENET device, a unique combination of web, broadband and medical technology, will drastically reduce the time it takes for a heart attack patient to receive the life-saving angioplasty procedure that gets their blood flowing again. This significant upgrade in technology could help save the lives of patients experiencing STEMI (ST-elevation myocardial infarction), a dangerous form of heart attack that impedes or blocks blood flow to the heart.

The partnership makes Dallas the second-largest city in the United States whose primary 911 agency is outfitted with the LIFENET system. Medical City also will be the first and only hospital in Dallas County capable of receiving patients connected to the LIFENET system.

All paramedics within DFR's Emergency Medical Services system are trained to recognize these particular electrocardiogram (EKG) strips and identify markers within those strips that warrant the use of the STEMI software. In conjunction, all 45 DFR rescue units as well as two Advanced Life Support (ALS) vehicles will carry the monitors that will support the transmission of this life saving data.

How the LIFENET System Can Save Lives

  • The LIFENET system allows paramedics to use the latest broadband technology to transmit 12-lead EKGs from the field to a web-based system at the hospital.
