Pennsylvania hospital gives cardiac monitors

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, January 24, 2008
The Forbes Regional Campus of West Penn Allegheny Health System has provided rapid intervention cardiac care monitors to its servicing ambulance companies in Allegheny and Westmoreland counties of Pennsylvania. The monitors can transmit electrocardiogram data over wireless Internet service before a patient leaves home. By the time an ambulance delivers a patient to the hospital, a physician will have been able to review the EKG results and activate a catheterization lab team if indicated.
