Angel upgrades stroke treatment capability

Written by 

Angel Medical Center will unveil new technology aimed at improving its treatment of stroke victims during a demonstration from 2-3 p.m. on May 15 in the hospital dining room.

“The Telestroke Robot is cutting edge technology that will allow the hospital to better diagnose and treat stroke victims,” said Bonnie Peggs, AMC director of marketing and public relations. “While mainly for use in the emergency room, the unit can also be taken to patient floor for rapid diagnosis.”

“This new technology allows Angel to utilize videoconferencing and image sharing technology with stroke specialists from Mission Hospital. Even though they are miles away, the physicians can remotely examine patients to help diagnose the patient’s ailment and recommend a plan of care for them,” said Peggs.
