Pre-Hospital and Acute Stroke Programs

Stroke is the leading cause of long-term severe disability and the fourth cause of death in the U.S.  Roughly 30-40% of first time strokes are cryptogenic, or due to unknown cause. It is necessary to establish the cause of stroke to determine functional prognosis, decrease the risk of future strokes, and select appropriate preventative care. Currently, serious gaps exist between in the clinical knowledge of cryptogenic stroke and how to treat, manage, and prevent the occurrence—leaving patients at risk for disabling strokes or even death.
