Strokes are the fifth leading cause of death in the United States and more than 690,000 Americans suffer acute ischemic strokes (AIS) from a blood clot per year. Every minute that passes puts stroke patients at a higher risk of suffering long-term or even permanent effects. Fortunately, stroke treatment is receiving a major overhaul, thanks to clinical trial results reported at the 2018 International Stroke Conference.
In this white paper you will read about:
- The biggest impact of the new stroke guidelines and telestroke
- New treatment windows and what percentage of patients eligible for clot removal
- Tools designed to help healthcare organizations review and analyze past experiences
While the research is significant for stroke treatment, the impact also extends to the providers themselves and the greater role telehealth technology can play in helping streamline and optimize stroke care.
