Get Ahead of Stroke (GAoS) - Coffee with Gary

On May 8, 2018, Dr. Sandra Narayanan met with Senator Gary Peters and other legislative officials to discuss the Get Ahead of Stroke (GAoS) campaign, which advocates implementing statewide EMS legislation to encourage large-vessel occlusion strokes to go directly to a center that performs thrombectomy right away, instead of a smaller hospital that offers only IV-tPA, losing precious hours (and brain), and then being transferred for thrombectomy.  This would follow a Level 1, level 2 system for trauma, but surprisingly, this system does not commonly exist for stroke.   Visit the GAoS website for more details.
