Heart Attack Treatment

http://66.225.205.104/MR20070316.mp3

Thursday during Morning Edition on WFAE, an NPR story focused on emergency hospital care for heart attack patients. The report said that many U.S. hospitals are not set-up to provide state-of-the-art treatment for heart attacks on 24/7 basis. We wanted to find out what procedures are in place at Charlotte hospitals. WFAE's Mark Rumsey has this report.
