Improving EMS Stroke Care: Saving Patients’ Lifes

No, the spell checker didn’t miss that one. I had to fight with it to keep “LIFES” in there. These RescueDigest Resources can help your improve your understanding, assessment and treatment of acute stroke, as well as improve your integration with Stroke Systems of Care. To save “LIVES”? Sure. You’ll be able to do that better. But improving stroke care isn’t just about life and death. Its more important than that. By refining your skills and getting your stroke patient to definitive care at a primary stoke center you’ll be making a huge difference in their quality of “LIFE”!
