    Define "cardiac alert". This may be a term used only in your facility or local area.

    Define cardiac alert. Facilities have different "catch phrases" for emergent situations. One facility it may mean a cardiac arrest requiring CPR, medicines to start the heart and shocking the heart to restore it to a livable rhythm and for another it may mean an acute heart attack that may require clot busting drugs and angioplasty or open heart to fix the clogged arteries.

    I will be happy to clarify.
