Stroke Telemedicine

September 2, 2008

When it comes to stroke, time is brain. That's because you have only a three-hour window after symptoms begin to receive a medication that's known to help. But people living in small towns may not have access to this medication, because their hospitals may not have staff trained to administer it. Mayo Clinic is hoping to change that. They're studying telemedicine to help stroke victims in rural hospitals get the treatment they need.
