• Cardiac arrest. With electric potential sensors we can warn you of your death, to minimize injury. Resuscitation rates better than Seattle. Cooling and¬†etiological evaluation with ultrasound.
  • Chest pain. Low risk patients managed out of hospital with triple rule out CT scans, saving time and money.
  • Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (cot death). ECU offer monitoring if warrented.
  • Myocardial infarction (heart attack). The fastest pain control on the planet is pre-planned. Prompt decisions on immediate thrombolysis vs. angioplasty must be made. Coordination with cath labs and interventional cardiologists is imperative to minimize door to balloon times. ECU improve outcome by Doppler ultrasound Allen tests, pre-hospital arterial catheters and consent. Post operative stroke risk managed by ECU.
  • Malignant cardiac dysrhythmias are rapidly cardioverted with an automated external defibrillator. Telecardiology offers advice in complexities such as QT syndrome or pediatric emergencies. Cooling suits as appropriate. Cardiomyopathy screening.
  • Acute decompensated cardiac failure electronic stethoscopes, echocardiogram, ultrasound CVP, hepatomegaly and telecardiology assist quick diagnosis. Immediate non-invasive ventilation reduces the risk of death, a concern for anyone in heart failure.
  • Cardiac tamponade. Ultrasound and pericardiocentesis. Prophylaxis post cardiac surgery.
  • Pulmonary embolism and deep venous thrombosis (blood clots) can be diagnosed and emergency treatment commenced. Consent for embolectomy. No other institution on Earth offers this. Security if anyone is pregnant, has been immobilized or on a long journey.
