Research demonstrates that accurate diagnosis and rapid medical attention greatly improves patient outcomes for stroke and STEMI patients. This begins with EMS and hospital emergency care, and continues through hospitalization to post-hospital care.

The Gates Vascular Institute is proud to sponsor this program for EMS providers to strengthen skills of rapid recognition, assessment, transport, communication with the ED, triage of acute stroke and STEMI patients.
