Migraine or Stroke? Diagnostic Test Could Provide Answer
from MedCity News
Researchers from the University of Cincinnati are behind a startup that's developing a medical device to help emergency doctors diagnose a severe type of headache that could be a warning sign for stroke. Xanthostat Diagnostics' device would analyze cerebral spinal fluid to determine if patients are suffering from sentinel subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), a painful headache that can signal a stroke. If undiagnosed — or even sometimes when they're diagnosed — these major hemorrhagic strokes can lead to death.
