Webinar: How prehospital stroke management with new endovascular care is helping EMS providers–
Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. EMS providers are regularly responding to patients who show warning signs of a stroke, and every second matters when it comes to treating stroke. That’s why early detection and prompt care play a crucial role in determining outcomes for stroke patients. In honor of National Stroke Awareness Month, EMS1, Medtronic Neurovascular and the IPSA are holding this special webinar.
In this webinar, Dr. Peter Taillac, an emergency physician and an associate professor of surgery, within the division of emergency medicine at the University of Utah Health, will share how new endovascular care is helping EMS providers.
