Your blood type determines who you can donate to, or receive blood from. People with type O negative (O-) are considered universal donors, as they can donate red blood cells to all other blood type recipients. That’s why it’s always in high demand — it’s used in emergency situations when there is no time to test a patient’s blood type. Source: Canadian Blood Services

Telestroke

Telestroke is a two-way audiovisual linkup between a Neurologist with stroke expertise and an Emergency Department Physician. It is an approach to treating vascular strokes that allows a neurologist to provide remote consultation for a stroke patient.

The neurologist is able to talk to the patient and physician about what symptoms they have experienced, evaluate the patient's motor skills, view a computed tomography (CT) scan, make a diagnosis and prescribe treatment. When a severe stroke is imminent, a drug known as tissue plasminogen activator (tPA), a protein involved in breaking down blood clots, can be prescribed, and is most effective when administered within 4.5 hours of noticing symptoms.
