Protocols are provided to the 33 participating rural hospitals for the fastest possible triage and treatment of ST elevation myocardial infarction patients. The team includes community and receiving hospital staff, air and ground transfer crews, cath lab teams and Prairie Cardiologists who administer highly specialized lifesaving treatments.
