Home care environment
Neurokeeper's monitor, will alert a high risk patient at home, of a possible stroke event, significantly shortening the time it takes them to reach the hospital.
A TIA patient released from the hospital has a short-term risk of stroke that is particularly high, with most studies finding risks between 10 to 20% within 90 days23,24.
Most studies show that only 25% of patients with stroke arrive to the ER within 3 hours7-10.
The main causes for the late arrival of patients to the hospital are13-22:
Neurokeeper's monitor, will improve a hospitalized patients prognosis by alerting the medical staff of a possible stroke event. .
Between 6.5 to 15% of all strokes occur in patients already hospitalized. It is recognized that a Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) can be a precursor to stroke. Several studies have shown that the short-term risk of stroke after a TIA is particularly high, with most studies finding risks between 10 to 20% within 90 days23,24. Risk is particularly high in the first few days after TIA, with most studies finding that within the first 3 months of an event, 25 to 50% of strokes occur within the first 2 days25,26.
Furthermore it has been shown that 20 to 40% of patients with acute stroke have a neurological clinical deterioration in the course of their hospitalization.
Another group of patients at risk of developing Acute Stroke during hospital stay includes patients admitted for surgical procedures or cardiac disorders.
Interventional options in stroke deterioration include either Anti-coagulation or cessation of treatment according to imaging diagnosis.
