Understanding STEMI Time

Last updated 3 years ago

When a heart attack occurs, it prevents oxygen-rich blood from reaching the heart. To restore proper heart function, a cardiac team must alleviate the blockage causing the attack.

This video demonstrates how quickly Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point can address heart attack-inducing blockages. STEMI is the term used to describe the duration of time between when a patient first experiences heart attack symptoms and when he receives treatment to address it. For every minute that the heart is denied the blood it needs, heart cells die, which makes short STEMI times critical to effective care. Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point offers swift yet comprehensive STEMI treatment for patients in the greater Hudson area.

Our Chest Pain Center can help patients contending with potentially life-threatening cardiac conditions. To learn more, call Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point today at (888) 741-5119.
