Every 15 minute delay in stroke treatment takes away a month of life
Every 15 minute delay in stroke treatment takes away a month of life (March 12, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From Australia - A new report published in Stroke finds that the sooner clot busting drugs are delivered for stroke, the better. Researchers conducted a meta-analysis on all major clot-busting drug trials and applied their findings to over 2,200 stroke patients. Results showed that for every minute the treatment was delivered faster, individuals gained an average of nearly two days of extra healthy life. They also found that every 15 minute delay in delivery of clot-busting drugs took away an average of one month of healthy life.
