Telemedicine is an innovative tool in the setting of ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), because it addresses the greatest challenge-delivering optimal reperfusion therapies in a timely manner. Telemedicine targets delays related to geography, distance, and stated prehospital systems of care. Integration of telemedicine into prehospital STEMI management has been shown to yield cost-effective improvements in patient care. Despite socioeconomic constraints, a standard prehospital network based on telemedicine is globally feasible. This article proposes 2 models that enable the use of telemedicine in the STEMI management protocol.
