BUILDING LOUISIANA’S STATEWIDE STEMI CARE SYSTEM
ST-segment myocardial infarction (STEMI) is the deadliest form of a heart attack that results from the complete closure of a major coronary artery.
LERN’s ongoing development of Louisiana’s statewide STEMI care system is based upon best practice guidelines as established by the American Heart Association’s Mission Lifeline and successful systems across the country.
Addressing the challenge of timely patient access to existing reperfusion (reopening of the artery) therapies is central to Louisiana’s STEMI care system.
