Effects of pre-hospital ECG transmission for ST-elevation myocardial infarction in Counties Manukau

In April 2013 the St John’s Ambulance Service began transmitting ECGs electronically to the Middlemore emergency department (MMH ED) to enable earlier catheter lab activation and out-of-hours bypass to Auckland City Hospital (ACH) for ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients. We assessed whether these changes further reduced time to primary PCI.
