Advancing Prehospital Stroke Care
Zoom | 7pm EST
Did you know that about 32,000 neurons are destroyed every second in a typical large vessel ischemic stroke? This is why Northwestern Medicine has put passion, time, and energy into creating one of the world's first mobile stroke units (MSUs), which brings advanced stroke care right to the patient's doorstep. Equipped with a CT-scanner, ventilator, cardiac monitors, medication pumps, remote access capabilities, and specialized stroke medications, the MSU brings the hospital to the patient.
Join us on April 24th at 7 pm EST to learn more about the MSU's inception, capabilities, and impact on stroke care from EMS medical director Dr. Stephen Graham, MD and EMS system coordinator Justin Williams, CCEMT-P.Register now!
