Faster Heart Attack Treatment Offered in Guysborough Antigonish Strait Health Authority

Heart attack patients who call 911 will receive faster treatment through new training by paramedics in the Guysborough Antigonish Strait Health Authority.

As part of government's Better Care Sooner health plan, the provincial pre-hospital STEMI Reperfusion Strategy (RESTORE) expanded to the district health authority following a successful project in Cape Breton.

Twenty additional EHS advanced care paramedics can now administer Tenectoplase (TNK), a new generation clot-busting medication, if they are treating someone experiencing a heart attack.
