Inside the STEMI ALERT Packet

The forms in each STEMI ALERT Packet have been carefully customized to reflect what treatment processes and practices work best at your hospital. Your packets may be slightly different than shown, but each packet will typically contain versions of the following:

Carefully study these forms. It’s important for you to understand the function of each one. They appear rather simple, and that’s our goal: simplicity. In this stressful situation we are striving for perfect execution of perfectly simple processes. So, we do whatever it takes to improve the process - including color-coded sheets for faster recognition!

Remember: When a STEMI is recognized, open a red STEMI ALERT Packet and distribute the enclosed color-coded checklists. These documents allow each person to perform their essential tasks - free of error with minimal supervision. Everyone will be functioning as a team but with clear individual duties, leaving you much closer to accomplishing your goal - earliest possible reperfusion!
