A YEAR OF CARDIAC MISSIONS For World Heart Day, we take a look at the cardiac missions we have responded to across Wales in the last 12 months. Operations manager Mark Winter said: "On a cardiac mission, every single minute counts. This could be a heart attack, for example, or a trauma sustained in a car accident. "Wales Air Ambulance is on standby 365 days a year to reach and treat anyone quickly. We take the A&E department to the roadside, and this can make a lifesaving difference. "Thanks to your support, we have been able to respond to 583 cardiac missions over the past 12 months, which is roughly eleven people every week. "Your support truly makes you a lifesaver."
