When stroke strikes, 
be ahead of your time.

For stroke patients, time is of the essence. Every minute saved can positively impact patient outcomes. 
That’s why it’s key to save time along the entire stroke pathway – from the onset of stroke to treatment and follow-up.

Learn about the stroke pathway and understand the strategies to reduce the risk of secondary stroke in this Healthcare Perspectives podcast episode featuring Mira Katan, MD, head of Stroke Unit and deputy head of Acute Neurology at University Hospital Basel in Switzerland, and Carlos Molina, MD, head of Neurology Section and director of Stroke Unit at Barcelona’s Vall d’Hebron Research Institute.
