In a cardiac emergency, fast treatment saves precious heart muscle, increasing your chances for survival and a positive recovery. UnityPoint Health - Des Moines's Cardiac Alert, developed in conjunction with Central Iowa EMS teams, helps coordinate all the healthcare experts needed, from the ambulance to the ER to the cardiac catheterization lab, for faster care. We're proud of these remarkable median times for opening blocked heart arteries, well below the "recommended" 90 minute time.
