Telestroke

The Provincial Telestroke Program is a component of Ontario’s stroke strategy and provides stroke patients in remote areas of the province with access to life-saving emergency care that they might not receive without this real-time expert neurological assessment.

Telestroke uses eHealth Ontario’s Emergency Neuro Image Transfer System (ENITS), a centralized web-based picture archiving and communication system for head scans that can be accessed and viewed by participating neurologists.

The Provincial Telestroke Program:

  • provides 24/7 stroke coverage via OTN;
  • uses CritiCall Ontario to contact a neurologist; and
  • supports discussions between Emergency Department physicians and a neurologist regarding the treatment of stroke patients, including the administration of tPA, a special drug that can break up a blood clot and allow blood supply to return.

Face is it drooping?

Arms can you raise both?

Speech is it slurred or jumbled?
