Heart disease is the #1 cause of death in the US. During a heart attack, every minute that passes before you get treatment, decreases your chance of survival. Just because you might not be in easy driving distance of a hospital doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have a fighting chance. At WakeMed, the training is very real, in order to give you that fighting chance.
This video shows a STEMI (or heart attack) patient training field transport via WakeMed Air Mobilefrom the 9-1-1 call to the cath lab. The WakeMed Center for Innovative Learning recently entered this video into the first annual METI awards, showcasing videos of human patient simulators in use.
