Treating Stroke Victims With Innovative Technology
Davis Hospital and Medical Center is proud to partner with the University of Utah Hospital’s TeleStroke program. Through a partnership with the University’s Clinical Neurosciences Center, our team can provide world-class support to stroke victims.
When a stroke victim enters our facilities, we know that every second counts. If a local neurologist isn’t immediately available, TeleStroke allows our team to bring a University of Utah neurologist (on-call 24 hours per day) into the emergency room, utilizing real-time videoconferencing and teleradiology.
Through TeleStroke, the on-call neurologist can guide Davis Hospital and Medical Center health care providers in administering acute stroke treatment with thrombolytics (medications that break down clots). With a live video stream, it’s as if the neurologist is actually in the room, working with a highly qualified emergency physician in diagnosing and treating the stroke victim with the appropriate treatment.
