Cardiac Alert at Sky Ridge Medical Center

Rapid Response for Chest Pain & Heart Attack Patients

Sky Ridge has initiated the Cardiac Alert program with our community emergency medical services (EMS) to provide speedier diagnosis and treatment of heart patients. 

Time is Muscle

When it comes to a heart attack, time is muscle. The more time the heart is deprived of blood and oxygen, the more muscle tissue dies. Sky Ridge's Cardiac Alert program provides heart attack patients the medical care they need as fast as possible.

How Cardiac Alert Works

Cardiac Cath Lab at Sky Ridge Medical Center

One of two state-of-the-art Cardiac Cath Labs at Sky Ridge

Once the paramedic has initiated a cardiac alert, Sky Ridge's Cardiac Alert Team, consisting of emergency medicine doctors, the cardiac cath lab team and a cardiologist, assemble. When the patient arrives at the hospital, he or she is taken directly to the cardiac cath lab. The goal here is to open up blocked arteries as quickly as possible. The team is ready 24/7!
