Cleveland Clinic Mobile Stroke Treatment Unit
Medscape has posted a new article discussing some of the research results conducted by Cleveland Clinic of the Mobile Stroke Unit.

“Every minute, every second, counts,” said study author Muhammad S. Hussain, MD, Cleveland Clinic, Ohio, adding that without treatment, stroke patients lose an estimated 2 million neurons per minute. “So saving about 40 minutes in terms of time to treatment translates into a huge benefit.”

Research shows that reducing time to treatment by about 15 minutes means that 5% more patients go home from the hospital and 3% more patients are able to walk, said Dr Hussain.
