Time matters most when dealing with cardiac patients. As a nationally Accredited Chest Pain Center, Wise Health System stands ready to quickly treat patients suffering from a heart attack.
Our emergency department works with Wise County Emergency Medical Services (EMS) in treating cardiac patients.
Treating Heart Attack Patients
When a heart attack patient is en route to Wise Health System, EMS personnel are able to transmit detailed vital statistics to our emergency department, allowing ER staff to treat the heart attack patient more quickly upon arrival. By the time the patient arrives at the hospital, the cardiologist will have already been notified and may be on site or at least on the way; the cardiac cath lab can be prepped and ready for any surgical procedure needed to open up the blocked vessels, thus minimizing heart damage.

How to Use an AED
Thousands of people die each year of sudden cardiac arrest. However, many of these deaths could be prevented with immediate and appropriate care.
An AED (Automated External Defibrillator) is an effective treatment for restoring a regular heart rhythm during sudden cardiac arrest. The device is easy to use and requires no medical background to operate.
