In this day and age, stroke is a treatable emergency. For patients with acute stroke, for doctors and health care providers, every second counts. This is why ‘time is life’ is an important driver of Mediclinic Middle East’s stroke program in .
Mediclinic hospitals in Dubai provide emergency stroke services around the clock, seven days a week, with state-of-the-art infrastructures, a neurovascular ward and intensive care units run by experienced healthcare providers trained in stroke response and treatment.
“Quality of care for our patients is our top priority and that is why Mediclinic Middle East established the Time Conscious Stroke Program which is a close collaboration between Mediclinic City Hospital, Mediclinic Parkview and Mediclinic Welcare Hospital in Dubai,” says Dr. Betty Lubser, Chief Medical Officer of Mediclinic Middle East. State-of-the-art treatment protocols in accordance with international guidelines and recommendations, and in cooperation with the Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services, this model allows us to provide fast, high-quality care to patients across Dubai and the neighboring city of Sharjah.”
Mediclinic’s 24/7 availability of neuro-interventional care allows City Hospital to treat and restore vascularization in a timely manner for sensitive medical emergencies and for more complex cases. The faster the blockage in the blood vessels is resolved, the better the chance of recovery without obstruction.
The management of stroke patients doesn’t stop there, and post-acute care is just as important as emergency care and restoring blood flow. This “aftercare” is provided by a multidisciplinary inpatient care team, where the neurologist works closely with a cardiologist and an internal medicine specialist to determine the cause of the stroke, so they can take a careful approach to preventing future strokes. Mediclinic Middle East places great emphasis on initiating early rehabilitation services with speech therapy and physical and occupational therapy to maximize opportunities for functional independence.
On the occasion of World Stroke Day which is celebrated on October 29 every year, we urge people to recognize the signs of stroke as FAST is one of the well-known ways to remember how to recognize the symptoms of stroke.
The first letter of FAST means Face. If a person’s face falls to one side or is unable to smile, this could be a sign of a stroke. The letter “A” stands for Arms. If a person has had a stroke, they may be unable to raise or keep both arms raised as one of them is landing. The letter “S” represents speech (Speech). Stroke victims may stammer or have difficulties holding conversations. The last letter “T” stands for Time, which reinforces the importance of responding quickly and calling 998/999 immediately for an ambulance. And remember that time is life.
