EMS World Magazine names ReadyLink 12-Lead ECG as one of the Top Innovations of the Year

EMS World Magazine has named the ReadyLink 12-Lead ECG by Physio-Control as one of the Top Innovations of the Year. The award was presented at the New York State EMS Symposium – Vital Signs 2011, in Syracuse, NY.

ReadyLink enables basic life support EMS teams to acquire and transmit a patient’s 12-lead ECG to hospitals using Physio-Control’s LIFENET System, a cloud-based data management network for remote physician interpretation and decision support, providing clinicians earlier insight into a chest pain patient’s condition, especially in rural areas with limited access to advanced life support providers.

  • Big fan of the device. What they really need to do is slap a 50mm printer on it and give it the LifePak 1000 AED and you'll have the $10k device every BLS/ILS unit in America will carry!

    Seriously, if this were available with the AED and printer built-in my BLS unit would have one. My fire department's engine would have one. I think you could get a 12-Lead done on any chest pain patient within 5 minutes.

    BLS interventions that matter!

Thank you for your response. By all means, take your time! As for the source of the first figure, I got it from the book "Essential Cardiology: Principles and Practice - 3rd edition" by Clive Rosendorff - Chapter 7, Figure 7.3 (Page 97). It's one of the rare texts where I found a mention of…

Thank you so much! I wonder why this information is not found in ECG texts. I have a query though. The critical information seems to be the fact that leads V1 and V2; V3; and V4-V6, each are physically located on a different transverse plane with respect to the theoretical electrical center. (Also mentioned in…
