Join Dr. Wouter Potters, Technical Physician at Amsterdam UMC, for a presentation on novel ambulatory EEG technology and associated procedure designed to enable paramedics to better triage stroke patients and reduce time to therapy.

Millions of people suffer a stroke each year. Endovascular thrombectomy (EVT) dramatically improves prognosis after stroke, but only if done rapidly. Since EVT is performed in specialized hospitals only, there is an unmet clinical need to identify stroke patients eligible for EVT in the ambulance. Bringing such patients straight to an EVT hospital improves prognosis. Unfortunately, no triage instrument for the hyperacute phase of stroke is available. With the EEG setup presented in this webinar, paramedics could triage stroke patients and reduce the time to therapy.

Please Note: registration deadline is 24:00 (CEST) on November 23rd.

Key Topics Include:

  • how to best utilize EEG to improve prognosis of stroke patients
  • how to decide already in an ambulance if the patient is a candidate for EVT
  • the added value of EEG for a stroke patient in an emergency setting

Who Should Attend?

  • biomedical engineers
  • neurophysiologists & neurologists
  • emergency medicine specialists
  • clinical neuroscientist
  • professionals interested in clinical machine learning
