Reperfusion Treatment and Stroke Outcomes in Hospitals With Telestroke Capacity

Reperfusion Treatment and Stroke Outcomes in Hospitals With Telestroke Capacity Key PointsQuestionWhat is the association between telestroke capacity and care patterns and outcomes for patients with acute ischemic stroke? FindingsIn this study including 153 272 patients treated for stroke, those who received care at hospitals with telestroke capacity had higher rates of reperfusion treatment and lower 30-day mortality compared with those treated at hospitals without telestroke. Increases in reperfusion treatment were largest in smaller hospitals, among rural residents, and among patients 85 years and older. MeaningPatients who present to hospitals with telestroke capacity were more likely to receive reperfusion treatment and have lower mortality. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA Neurology American Medical Association

Abstract

Key PointsQuestionWhat is the association between telestroke capacity and care patterns and outcomes for patients with acute ischemic stroke? FindingsIn this study including 153 272 patients treated for stroke, those who received care at hospitals with telestroke capacity had higher rates of reperfusion treatment and lower 30-day mortality compared with those treated at hospitals without telestroke. Increases in reperfusion treatment were largest in smaller hospitals, among rural residents, and among patients 85 years and older. MeaningPatients who present to hospitals with telestroke capacity were more likely to receive reperfusion treatment and have lower mortality.
