Mission: Lifeline®


CREATING STEMI AND CARDIAC RESUSCITATION SYSTEMS OF CARE AND IMPROVING EXISTING ONES.



Each year, more than half a million Americans experience ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), out-of-hospital cardiac arrest or both. The majority of these patients fail to receive appropriate treatment for their life-threatening conditions within recommended timeframes.

 

Mission: Lifeline® was created by the American Heart Association as a response to missed opportunities for prompt, appropriate STEMI treatment. Recently, Mission: Lifeline expanded to help existing STEMI systems of care incorporate out-of-hospital cardiac resuscitation into their systems.
