Emergency Care

When it's needed most

In the most sudden and extreme cases, cardiac treatment at Lawrence General begins in the Emergency Department, with support available from the Hospital's two Advanced Life Support (ALS) paramedic teams. On scene, ALS provides critical information for the ED physicians to begin their assessment, and the paramedics' advanced certifications enable them to administer medications as directed while en route to the Hospital.

With its highly skilled physicians and nurses trained in Advanced Cardiac Life Support, the ED staff can rapidly assess a patient's condition and initiate the best course of treatment. At their disposal are the latest thrombolytic (clot-busting) medications, as well as state-of-the-art diagnostic tools to establish the patient's condition and begin treatment. Lawrence General's experienced staff can administer these lifesaving medications well within the national target of 30 minutes from the time the patient arrives and often in as little as 17 minutes.
