Dr. Michael T. Mullen, Assistant Professor of Neurology at Penn, explains Penn Medicine’s Telestroke capabilities including videoconferencing which allows experts in stroke care to see and evaluate patients located at other hospitals. Doctors and nurses can observe stroke symptoms first-hand and in real time, and then take the appropriate action immediately.
Penn Medicine was the first comprehensive stroke center in Philadelphia, and through Telestroke, continues to be an innovator in stroke care. Telestroke gives more patients access to Penn’s leading stroke experts and therapies.
