RescueDigest Resources: Identifying and Treating ACS & STEMI

RescueDigest’s Top Picks of essential resources for critical topics in emergency services.

Identifying and Treating ACS and STEMI: ALS and BLS

Every responder knows that when it comes to cardiac care, time is muscle, but do you know how to rapidly identify acute coronary syndromes and STEMI?

You say you’re not in EMS?

What about for the responders that you work with? Would you know what to do if another officer became suddenly short of breath or if another firefighter said that he was dizzy, nauseas and sweating? These RescueDigest Resources will help you identify, assess and treat acute coronary syndromes and STEMI as part of a full system of care, whether you’re helping a patient, a fellow responder or a member of your own family.


Minutes count when identifying, assessing and treating acute coronary syndromes!
