Fisher-Titus Medical Center offers telestroke technology, which will be the featured topic of our Wellness Walk on Saturday, May 21. Join us at 10:30 a.m. at Veterans Memorial Lake Park by the north entrance near the clubhouse on Old State Road in Norwalk to hear Certified Nurse Practitioner Andrea Adams discuss telestroke technology and how it advances stroke patient care and saves lives.
The topic is a great way to learn about new technologies that can help patients during a crucial time. “I think the most important thing is rapidly identifying a stroke and being able to provide the patients with the care they need as soon as possible,” says Andrea. “Time is brain!”
One way hospitals have helped improve conditions is by implementing telestroke technology, which enables neurologists to assess a stroke patient remotely. When a stroke patient arrives at the emergency room, there is a chance a specialist may not be on staff at the time. Telestroke technology helps provide rapid care and reduce complications or even death.
