Join us as Master of Science in Applied Life Sciences student Soz Mirza speaks about “Reducing Door-To-Needle Times for Acute Ischemic Stroke Patients.”
Stroke is the leading cause of disability, and the third leading cause of death in the United States. The severity of stroke-related disability and death can be reduced if appropriate and timely patient care is given. According to the Get with the Guidelines protocol, intravenous injection of tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) should be given within an hour of patient arrival, and 4.5 hours after the onset of symptoms. Evidence shows that the earlier patients are treated after symptom onset, the more favorable their outcomes will be. This project, at Adeventist Health Glendale Hospital, aims to analyze the delays in tPA delivery, and to implement interventions to reduce door to needle times, and thus improve patient outcomes.
