AAMC welcomes Maryland State Police for helipad safety event
On July 16, Maryland State Police (MSP) brought MedEvac Trooper 2 to AAMC for a helipad safety training event with the Cardiac Cath Lab and ED teams who respond to STEMI (ST elevation Myocardial Infarction) calls.
AAMC is a Cardiac Intervention Center, certified by Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical Services System (MIEMSS). The helipad safety training provided by MSP was invaluable. It is because of the teamwork from the field to the Cath Lab and beyond that we are able to open blocked arteries on patients having acute heart attacks so quickly.
The team has met the national standard of Door to Balloon time of < 90 minutes, 100% of the time in 4 out of the last 6 months. Great job to all and a huge thank you to MSP Trooper 2 for being there for us! -Julie Blackburn, MSN, RN
