David, my flight program (OSF Life Flight) does function under a STEMI transfer protocal (heart 777 ). At no time do we hot off load or load crew or patients due to our program policy. We try to keep our bedside time to under 8 minutes. Our regional representatives have really strived to educating out lying hospitals on the protocal so we all can improve the bedside times. Look forward to seeing your results.

In return for your help, I will forward the aggregate results. Thank you in advance.> 1. Does your flight program participate in a regional protocol for interfacility STEMI transfers?> 2. In general, does your flight program encourage a "hot load" at the sending facility?> 3. In general, does your flight program encourage a "hot unload" at the receiving facility?> 4. What is the average time spent at the sending facility for STEMI transfers (defined as the arrive at sending facility-leave sending facility interval)? > > Optional: To help prevent more than one answer per program, what is the name of your flight program (I will blind the aggregate results and will not divulge any program-specific responses)?> > DTKDavid T.
