Improved outcomes with new protocol for treating acute ischemic stroke

from Medical Bag

Implementation of a physician-directed emergency stroke protocol resulted in decreased door-to-needle time and onset-to-treatment time, without increases in rates of symptomatic intracerebral hemorrhage, according to a study published in Annals of Emergency Medicine. Researchers in this retrospective before-after intervention analysis evaluated the efficacy of an emergency physician-based stroke protocol designed for use in an urban hospital when no neurologist is available. Outcomes evaluated were symptomatic intracerebral hemorrhage, time delay and clinical recovery of patients, as well as change in door-to-needle time, as estimated by multivariable linear regression. more
