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!

Can't be a potassium imbalance. The TW's wouldn't change and then change back. If it was coronary spasm, I would expect some ST segment elevation. The TW'S are also not hyperacute (peaked). Does she wear some sort of electronic stimulator?

[…] Last week, I described the case of a middle-aged male with a vague history of heart failure who had been having progressive shortness of breath for 4-5 days. On the day he called 911, he had been walking a short distance when he syncoped. EMS obtained an ECG: […]

I believe this may be coronary artery vasospasm.

What it Looks Like: Cardiac Arrest
this is really interesting because something similar happened to a patient as I sat them up in bed after delivering them to a community hospital in fact I even turned to his son and said "does dad suffer with epilepsy?" And then turned back and realised he wasn't breathing
