BATON ROUGE - New technology from Emergency Medical Services in Baton Rouge could save your life if you have a heart attack.

A new "12-LEAD" system allows paramedics to send information about how your heart operates to emergency rooms before you even get there.

That could shave an hour of tests off your visit and save heart tissue from dying.

News 2's Stephanie Ryan will have details tonight on News 2 at 5 p.m.
