The HeartReach Mobile Cardiac Unit provides excellence in emergency transport services to hospitals and patients throughout the region and surrounding areas.
The mobile Coronary Care Unit is equipped with state of the art cardiac equipment which includes: cardiac monitors, defibrillators, pacemakers, a ventilator, hi-tech IV pumps, blood pressure equipment, and the capabilities for a 12 lead electrocardiogram (EKG). An on board fax machine is available for the quick transmitting of medical reports.
While enroute to the medical facility, the unit is in constant contact with physicians. The technology and personnel available in transport is equivalent to the care received in a Cardiac/Medical Intensive Care Unit at a medical center.
The HeartReach Team is a highly qualified group of cardiac emergency nurses, and paramedics, all of whom have completed in-depth specialty training in emergency cardiac and medical care. Each member of the team attends a monthly inservice training session that continually keeps them abreast of the latest advances in cardiac care. All members have also had extensive training in care for pediatric and adult acute life threatening illnesses. The entire HeartReach operation is supervised by the physician medical director.
