Project UPSTART: the Use of Procedural Standardization to Reduce Recognition to Repferfusion (R2R) Time in ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI)

Screening ECG Protocol

This protocol is used to determine which patients need an immediate screening ECG. Prompt recognition of STEMI is the critical first step: without early recognition, there can be no progress toward early reperfusion. The Screening ECG Protocol provides clear, accessible guidelines for quick staff reference and is also easily adaptable for use by EMS. This guide sheet is available in printable .pdf format.
