A stroke occurs every 40 seconds, and every 4 minutes someone dies of a stroke in the United States*. Many survivors will have permanent disabilities, and it is estimated that stroke associated costs amount to $34 billion annually in health care services, medication, and missed work. This webinar focuses on how having an efficient pre-hospital EMS system in place for patients with time-critical medical needs can dramatically improve a patient’s functional outcome.
Please join Dr. Mehta as he speaks about his experience in tailoring EMS and stroke workflow during the COVID-19 crisis and what systems and processes they have put in place to expedite patient diagnosis, triage, and treatment. He will also be reviewing some clinical cases followed by a Q&A session.
