It is thanks to the technology STEMI which contributed to the fact that I am still here today...
This is amazing. My respect for it. This ECG consultation is really helpful.
Radovan Stadther, M.D., urgentist, EMS Falck
Thank you for saving my life. I had a heart attack with cardiac arrest. I have survived resuscitation and speedy transportation to the Cardiocenter in Prešov thanks to the application STEMI. I cross my fingers for the application so it can help others.
Milan Fabrici, 38-year-old patient, Spišská Nová Ves, Slovakia
The app STEMI is working well, reliably. It is possible to use it in real clinical practice. I see a few variants how the app can be used over time.

STROKE module represents a clear benefit for a patient with suspected stroke. It urgently mobilizes all the necessary parts of anamnestic, diagnostic and therapeutic procedures while benefiting the patient. It minimizes the ischemic time which is a key to the extend, character and reversibility of the damage to the brain tissue.
PhDr. Valéria Horóckyová, a paramedic, Košice Emergency
We have been using STEMI since 2017 and in comparison with the ECG telemetry, the effect is excellent. App STEMI enables immediate picture and voice communication with a cardiologist in a Heart Center who can see where the ambulance is located at that moment and can see the ETA. While waiting on the response, the EMS staff can prepare the patient. App STEMI significantly helps paramedics in the myocardial infarction diagnostics. We have seen an increase in direct transportation from the field to the Heart Center and an elimination of stops "in between" at local hospitals for the purpose of myocardial infarction diagnostics. The ECG - PCI interval has been shortened and consequently the total ischemic time, too.
MUDr. Táňa Bulíková, PhD., the president of Slovak Society of Urgent Medicine and Disasters Medicine
It is a great benefit. The shortening of the time intervals has been proven by the statistics and thus the benefit for the patient is clear. As an interventional cardiologist I also appreciate the fact that since the ECG diagnosis is confirmed remotely by our specialist on call, it does not happen that they would call me at night to come to the case in vain, if the STEMI diagnosis would have been established wrongly.
Doc. MUDr. Martin Studenčan, PhD. Head of Cardiological Clinic, Cardio Center of the Teaching Hospital, Presov,
We are not professional cardiologists. Cardiology expert is able to evaluate the patient better. The application really helps us.
Lubica Bajerovska, M.D., Head Physician, Košice Emergency, Slovakia
The application STEMI is perfect. It helps us really much. It means assurance for us and definitely a benefit for patients.
Katarina Cepigova, paramedic
We have tested the app in the region of Prešov and I have to say that it has made our work easier. It concerns mainly ECG, where it is not clear whether it is STEMI or not and ECG record is not that easily readable.
