Quicker, More Accurate Cardiac Patient Care
The hospitals of the Sunrise Health System are the first hospital system in Nevada to use a new, secure software solution, AirStrip CARDIOLOGY™, to read electrocardiographs (ECG). The new technology allows clinicians to improve cardiac patients’ care by providing near real-time ECG data to cardiologists quicker, more accurately and that’s more easily shared with consulting colleagues.
AirStrip CARDIOLOGY has the capability to zoom in without distorting the image, giving cardiologists the ability to see changes in electrical cardiac activity that’s as small as 0.5 millimeters, which can be hard to read on a faxed ECG or on a PDF image. A change that small may indicate a serious heart problem or an emergency condition.
Rapid access to information is very important in decision making for cardiologists treating critically ill heart patients. The quicker the heart artery can be opened, the better the chance of the patient living and sustaining less heart damage. Getting an ECG sent to a physician on his or her Smartphone or touch pad will allow physicians to make an immediate decision to get the patient to the Cath Lab to open the artery and restore blood flow.
