EMS to Cath Lab is Now a Sterile Process at Augusta Health

The Augusta Health Cardiac Cath and EP lab is now a sterile area (like the OR). Sterile attire must be worn in the Cath Lab. The sterile attire is kept in the ED and outside the STEMI elevator.  Here is the process for a pre-hospital STEMI alert patient who is brought directly to the Cath Lab by EMS:

Please let me know if you have any questions regarding the new STEMI flow process. Thanks for all that you do.
