Sharp Health News

The robot will see you now (video)

March 2, 2016

When it comes to strokes, "time is brain." If doctors are unable to administer rapid treatment medication within the first four hours after an ischemic stroke, essential brain function can be lost forever.

At Sharp Coronado Hospital, a new system called Telestroke accelerates diagnosis at that moment when swift treatment means the difference between recovery and brain damage — or even death — in the Emergency Department (ED).

Dr. Jennifer Jothen, a neurologist affiliated with Sharp Coronado and Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center, and Pamela Adler, RN, ED clinical nurse specialist and stroke coordinator, explain how Telestroke helps doctors make a diagnosis even when they are away from the hospital.
