Emergency Cardiac Care

Program funded: September 2012 through September 2015

Every second is critical when responding to a heart attack, which is why the communication between medics and emergency room medical staff must be efficient. This program provides medics with the tools to transmit electrocardiogram results while in the field, so physicians will be able to treat patients sooner. Prevention and education surrounding heart attack symptoms are key for this program, led by the Lynnwood Fire Department and also involving medics from across South Snohomish County as well as staff at Swedish/Edmonds Hospital.
