When someone is having a cardiac event, time is of the essence. Limiting the time the patient is having tissue death is one of the key aspects of treating patients when they are having a cardiac event.
Medic Ambulance has invested more than $1 million in technological upgrades to ensure Solano County residents receive the best quality cardiac care. These technological upgrades allow paramedics in the field to perform field 12-Lead EKGs, identifying patients having an ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI), aka heart attack, transmit the findings of the EKG directly to a hospital’s cardiology team, and transport the patient directly to the cardiac catheterization lab for immediate, life-saving treatment.
All Medic ambulances are equipped to wirelessly transmit field 12‐Lead EKGs to local hospitals and STEMI receiving centers using the ZOLL RescueNet 12‐Lead Software. Each ambulance is equipped with state-of-the-Art ZOLL X Series monitors.
Additionally, all ambulances have InMotion Online Mobile Gateways (OMG), which allows the company’s Verizon Internet cards to be installed within the OMG. Once the Internet card is installed, the OMG the enables the ambulance to become a Wi-Fi hotspot, transmitting data and exporting data from the ambulance. The ZOLL X Series monitor has built-in Wi-Fi capabilities and communicates with the ambulance’s OMG when data will need to be transmitted or uploaded.
