EMS on AIR

In this episode, we present an example of an EMS system using FAST-ED to evolve their stroke system of care.  The OCMCA Stroke Systems of Care Special Study is designed to evaluate EMS’s ability to measure stroke severity using FAST-ED.  I’ll provide you with a nice clean overview of the study, who’s currently in it, how to get involved, and more. 

This study is rapidly expanding.  If you’d like to know more information about the OCMCA’s stroke study, or if your agency or hospital would like to participate, visit OCMCA.org/stroke.  There you’ll find all the information you need about the study and how your EMS agency or hospital can participate.  You’ll even find study data, as well as a few presentations that you can download.  You don’t have to be located in Michigan to participate.  The OCMCA would LOVE participants from all over the U.S. help us to identify the strengths and weaknesses of implementing a stroke severity scale, so that we can share the knowledge amongst the entire prehospital community.
