  1. An attempt to shorten inhospital therapeutic delays.

    Article - En anglais

    Background and Purpose Significant delays often occur during the treatment of patients with acute stroke.

    Some of those delays occur in the hospital.

    We attempted to shorten inhospital treatment intervals by creating a rapid-response system, similar to that available for cardiac arrest, that would allow the stroke team to be available within a few minutes to care for stroke victims.

    Methods We connected all beepers (pocket pagers) of stroke team members to a common access number and instructed the emergency staff to activate that number immediately upon arrival of a stroke victim.
