Overcoming the Barriers in Managing Acute Ischemic Stroke: Reducing Time of Stroke Onset to Needle Time
Ischemic stroke patients need hospital treatment within 3 hours, but only 25% are admitted soon enough for early treatment. The greatest delay is from initial event to 911 call. Once in hospital, initial work-up is prompt, but delays occur in neurology consult and taking/reading a CT scan. To resolve these issues, view a webinar at www.rockpointe.com/managingstroke (0.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits offered). For information on ACEP tPA policy, visit ACEPs Current Clinical Policies Page.
