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!

1) Change to every lead? STEMI is questionable on my Dx # 6 on a list of 5. IF my recall on this, IF a Global presentation of ST change with QRS Change: a) STEMI is extremely unlikely or NOT STEMI b) start looking for mechanical problems ( tamponade) or chemical/ electrical (electrolyte imbalance or…

My first thought was hyperkalemia. If the pt is stable, begin with Ca++ & bicarb. Consider albuterol. Serial 12-leads. Start toward PCI capable facility. If it is hyperkalemia, initial treatment should begin to improve pt's condition and there is no harm caused from the increased transport time. If there is an underlying MI as well,…
