Mount Carmel Stroke Outreach Program

2014.05.14

The Stroke Outreach team at Mount Carmel Health System in Columbus, Ohio consisting of nurses, therapists, medics, retired school teachers and stroke survivors developed a one hour interactive program for elementary school aged children to educate them about recognizing signs and symptoms of stroke. Through five specific interactive stations students simulate the signs and symptoms of stroke and learn the importance of calling 911 FAST! The program tracks outcomes by testing the children's knowledge prior to the program, one week after and then again six months later. This interactive program shows great success with students' knowledge retention at six months at nearly 90%. The team also developed a coloring and activity book for children that tell the story of a child recognizing stroke symptoms and calling 911 becoming a true stroke hero!

BRASATECH

2014.10.31

BRASATech’s Hackathon will give you a unique chance to contribute to Brazil’s future by designing and implementing a software application to solve a real-world problem. The problem will be disclosed on the day of the event.
Participants will be challenged to develop innovative software, technology, prototypes or proofs of concept that would improve some of Brazil's challenges.
The challenge is stroke, as the leading cause of death in Brazil and worldwide.
Stroke can be effectively treated. For instance, ischemic stroke, the most common type of stroke (80%) can be treated with medication to dissolve the clot. The best result is seen in those treated within 90 minutes from the onset of the stroke. Unfortunately, less than 30% of patients with stroke arrive within 60 minutes to the Hospital. The reasons for the delay in looking for help varies, from lack of knowledge in recognizing the stroke signs, denial to cognitive impairment to access help. Therefore, a device that can help detect stroke, monitor vital signs and rule out stroke mimics such as hypoglicemia and to connect to emergency medical services can improve the chances of patients survival.
Challenge: To detect Stroke, to monitor and to connect to Emergency Medical Service.
