PROGRAM TO PROMOTE EARLY DETECTION OF HEART PROBLEMS

By Nate Gonner 3/4/2013

           NEBRASKA CITY’S EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT SERVICES WANT TO LET THE PUBLIC KNOW OF A NEW STATEWIDE PROGRAM THEY ARE INCORPERATING INTO THE SERVICES.

 

              THE PROGRAM, CALLED CHEST PAIN, DON’T DELAY, DIAL 911, IS SPONSERED BY THE NEBRASKA EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES AND TRAUMA PROGRAM TO HELP DETECT HEART PROBLEMS IN PATIENTS BEFORE HAVING A HEART ATTACK.

 

              ACCORDING TO EMS SERVICES IN NEBRASKA CITY THOUSAND OF LIVES HAVE BEEN SAVED IN URBAN COMMUNITIES BASED ON A PROGRAM SIMILAR TO THIS WHO SENDS PATIENTS IMMEDIATELY TO A FULL TRAMA UNIT RATHER THAN THE NEAREST LOCAL HOSPITAL FOR TREATMENT.

 

              NEBRASKA CITY EMS CAPTAIN ANDREW SNODGRASS SAYS WITH 80 PERCENT OF THE STATE BEING CONSIDERED IN RURAL AREAS, IT MAYBE HARD FOR SOME AREAS TO HAVE ACCESS TO A FULL TRAUMA CENTER IN THE EVENT OF A HEART ATTACK.

 

           SNODGRASS ADDED A HEART ATTACK CAN HAPPEN TO ANYONE AT ANYTIME REGARDLESS OF AGE.
