North Shore Health Ambulance Service has LIFENET System
North Shore Health Ambulance services have the LIFENET system from Physio-Control, which is the first web-based system of its kind. This system has the goal of reducing time to treatment for patients in Cook County who experience a dangerous type of heart attack know as STEMI (ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction.) STEMI poses a serious threat to the heart muscle and can result in death or serious disability for the patient. The more quickly patients receive treatment the more likely they are to have a positive outcome. The nearest catheterization labs for treatment are located in Duluth. For more information call 387-3040.
