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

The system then distributes the information via the Internet to care teams at the hospital's ER, catheterization lab and the cardiologist's handheld device.
  • Rapid delivery of the EKG data allows Medical City to prepare for the patient's arrival ahead of time.
  • Medical City also will be able to make treatment decisions while the patient is still in transport.
  • Knowing the diagnosis before the patient arrives at Medical City can significantly reduce the amount of time it takes to care for the patient upon arrival and improve overall patient outcomes.
  • The standard guideline for this treatment process is currently 90 minutes. With the new software, DFR hopes to eventually shorten the process to 60 minutes or less.

  • "Our investment associated with providing this technology pales in comparison to the advantage that Dallas Fire-Rescue emergency personnel and Medical City physicians now have when diagnosing and treating heart attack patients," said Erol Akdamar, president and chief executive officer of Medical City. "We saw a need that we believed we could fill and we are honored to be able to support Dallas Fire-Rescue and serve our community in this way."

    "The technology in itself is remarkable," said DFR's deputy chief of the EMS Response Bureau, Bobby D. Ross, "but even more remarkable is that it puts us at the cutting edge of pre-hospital cardiac care."

    Because STEMI affects one or more of the arteries that carry blood to the heart, it poses a serious threat to the heart muscle. Studies show that time from the onset of STEMI to treatment at the hospital is critical for improving survival and outcomes for these patients.
