“ASM/Aetna are doing a fantastic job and we could not ask for more – the ECGs you are transmitting are right on the money (STEMIs or close). We use ASM/Aetna – as a gold standard, and want us (ASM/Aetna/ED/Card Team) to be the one to follow by others.

The times and outcomes on STEMI pts with the pre hosp ECG are beyond belief (no in-hospital deaths), door-to-balloon time averaging 49 minutes and EMS to Balloon Time 79 minutes, including off-hour presentations (50% of all cases). The off hours are the most difficult and these could have potentially missed the 90 min D2B mark: so far no misses for D2B, and not to forget, the last STEMI your team brought in – D2B of 26 minutes.”

–Marcin Dada, MD, Associate Director of Chest Pain Center, Cardiology Administration, referencing field transmission of ST-elevation myocardial infarcts.
