Virtual Stroke Assistance in North Central Arkansas
Many of Arkansas’ rural hospitals without the support of a neurologist
often forgo administration of tissue plasminogen activator (tPA), as they
lack the staff resources to accurately identify and manage tPA candidates.
Further, the window of time needed to effectively administer tPA is often
lost when stroke patients are transported to a better-equipped, remote
hospital. As such, Arkansas’ stroke patients are missing out on
a quality-of-life-saving drug that significantly improves the chances
of recovery while reducing permanent, stroke-related disability and, quite
AR SAVES (Stroke Assistance through Virtual Emergency Support) has implemented
a stroke management system specifically targeting these shortcomings by
increasing access to subspecialty expertise through telemedicine technology,
thereby engineering a coordinated assessment and care-based plan for Arkansas’
stroke patients. Baxter Regional Medical Center is proud to be one of
48 partnering AR SAVES sites and is equipped with telemedicine technology
to access a vascular neurologist 24/7.
