Simulation-based medical education teaches neurology residents how to treat stroke patients

from News-Medical

One of the most challenging cases that a first-year neurology resident physician can face is a stroke patient in the emergency department. The physician must quickly decide whether the patient is a candidate for the clot-busting drug tPA, which can minimize stroke damage. But giving tPA to the wrong patient can make the stroke worse. There's no time to waste, because in one minute, a stroke can kill nearly 2 million brain cells. more
