PRESTO Network Launches Ventura County!

The Oregon Sudden Unexpected Death Study has expanded into Ventura County California with the goal of enrolling more patients into the study.  The Ventura County expansion begins an exciting new chapter in our research and we are looking forward to working with our new partners in the Ventura EMS community. These include: AMR Ambulance in Ventura County, Gold Coast Ambulance Services, Lifeline Ambulance Service, Ventura City Fire Department and Ventura County Fire Department. The research is conducted out of the Arrhythmia Research Laboratory at the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute.
