Stony Brook University Hospital recently has planned that in spring-rolling emergency rooms, two mobile units will be introduced, which would be developed for reaching the stroke patients within crucial moments. This is mainly probable to take place in times of circulatory brain-sparing medications, which in turn dramatically impacts survival.
Doctors at Comprehensive Stroke Center of Stony Brook are expecting the new units that would be operating at Suffolk County to be highly beneficial in reducing stroke disability, thereby improving survival rates. The notable point here is that this hospital has been sketching out to invest approximately $2.2Million in the two new units and these are expected to be the hospital’s first emergency vehicle in the region. Moreover, they are likely to be stationed at the exits of LIE (Long Island Expressway).
On a notable aspect, Future Market Insights had recently carried out a study based on airway management devices market on a global basis. It indicates that decently increasing number of emergency medical services is expected to dive in notable revenue growth in airway management devices market, mainly due to pre-hospital settings advancement.
Telemedicine Revolutionizes Emergency Reponses
The mobile units are equipped with CT scanners, which helps in determining if the patient is suffering from bleeding in brain or blocked vessel. The spring-rolling emergency rooms will be comprising of stroke first responders with brain imaging equipment as well as pharmaceuticals. Every unit will be having a CT technologist, emergency medical technician, paramedic and critical care nurse.
The new units are expected to enable patients in receiving same medications at home as they would experience in emergency departments. Moreover, time-sensitive stroke therapies would be initiated in the field, way before taking the patients for additional care in Stony Brook. Several studies in Midwest and Deep South have indicated that such mobile units significantly enable in lowering stroke disability as well as death rates. Dr. Peter Rasmussen from Ohio’s Cleveland Clinic had mentioned as to how effective these mobile units have been, which in turn paves way for airway management devices market growth and development. He had mentioned that mobile units is the best way for handling patients suffering from acute stroke. Also, these units help in attaining goals with regards to management of stroke patients.
Furthermore, 4G broadband cellular technologies have been significantly beneficial for cerebrovascular experts at hospital in diagnosing and directing care of patients suffering from stroke, when in mobile units. Telemedicine on a major basis is expected to revolutionize emergency response to the patients suffering from stroke. CT images could be easily relayed to hospitals with the help of telemedicine capacity of each mobile unit.
