Study: Ultrasound device may improve emergency stroke care
from HealthDay news via U.S. News & World Report
The use of a hands-free ultrasound device in combination with a clot-busting drug appears safe for patients with a common kind of stroke, a small, new study finds. An ischemic stroke occurs when blood flow to the brain is blocked. When this happens, the hands-free ultrasound device is placed on the patient's head and delivers ultrasound to boost the effectiveness of the clot-busting medicine tPA (tissue plasminogen activator).
