Providing 24/7 Expertise for Stroke Patients

Within approximately 15 minutes of arrival at Saddleback Memorial’s Emergency Department, stroke patients have a board-certified neurologist at their bedside thanks to highly advanced technology. The patient and specialist, or tele-neurologist, can see and hear one another through high-definition video conferencing. Tele-neurologists can perform a complete examination and decide quickly on a course of treatment, 24 hours a day, just as if they were at the patient’s bedside.
