In July 2010, the service began a new protocol of beaming electrocardiogram readings of their patients to the Blackberry's of cardiologists. That allows doctors to coach paramedics through life-saving decisions as patients are transported by ambulance. Statistics show the program is lowering mortality rates and speeding up treatment times, said Dr. Rob Grierson, the service's medical director. "If you look at the death rate for people with heart attacks about a year ago, system wide within the city, it was about eight per cent. Well, right now … we are looking at about a two per cent mortality rate."
