The Role of ER in Brain Stroke


Emergency Response (ER):

Timely medical intervention is crucial for saving lives in cases of emergency conditions, such as an accident, heart attack, or brain stroke. However, the biggest challenge posed in such situations is understanding the type of emergency and reaching out to a hospital that is well-equipped with emergency medical facilities for tending to such patients. There can be situations where the patient’s condition is misunderstood; there is a delay in contacting an ambulance, there is a late arrival of an ambulance, or the patient goes to a hospital without adequate capacity to handle the particular type of emergency. All these conditions are critical in saving lives and, thus, become a factor in obtaining timely medical help at the time of emergency.

With the availability of a well-equipped emergency service department manned by highly trained and capable medical professionals along with advanced treatment facilities, Omni Hospital extends timely medical assistance to emergency patients, including those suffering from a brain stroke. 

First 60 Minutes of Emergency Response (ER)

The medical aid provided within 60 minutes from the point of incidence of a brain stroke can significantly increase the chances of survival of a patient. Additionally, the medical assistance provided by Emergency response (ER) doctors and other medical professionals contributes to this effort. Omni Hospitals offer complete ER medical support with the availability of well-trained ER doctors and other healthcare providers 24/7. 

Emergency Response (ER) Department at Omni Hospitals 

Our Emergency Department at Omni Hospitals is accessible via every mode of transport with ample parking space and availability of 24/7 essential facilities, such as electricity, water, emergency beds, and a hygienic toilet. Our Emergency department is manned by ER doctors and highly trained medical staff to manage and tend to brain stroke patients around the clock.

Advantages of Rapid Emergency Response

For patients suffering from a brain stroke, time is of the essence. Rapid response and management of stroke can help reduce organ damage and save lives. Therefore, a well-trained rapid response team is vital for managing patients suffering from a brain stroke. The major benefits obtained by stroke patients when emergency response (ER) teams tend to them include the following.

  • Efficient and timely patient care: Since time is crucial in case of emergency conditions like brain stroke, stroke patients can access timely and effective patient care that can potentially prevent a lot of damage before complications can occur.
  • Possibility of reduced morbidity and mortality among patients: When stroke patients are tended to by trained medical professionals and ER doctors at the earliest during an emergency call, their risk of mortality reduces drastically along with lesser chances of experiencing complications. 
  • Possible reduced costs: When early emergency medical intervention is taken to manage critical patients, a lot of complications can be avoided. While further medical intervention may be required for patients suffering from brain stroke to treat them completely, early intervention can significantly reduce the amount of time patients may have otherwise needed to spend in the hospital due to the possible complications of a brain stroke. This can even possibly prevent costly treatments for treating a brain stroke.
  • Greater change of improved long-term outcomes: By immediately responding to a stroke, healthcare providers can potentially improve the efficacy of treatments given to stroke patients later on, as well as improve prognosis and long-term outcomes.  
  • Increased patient satisfaction: With the availability of advanced medical facilities that support our patients during emergencies, our team of medical professionals and support staff ensures all-round management of the emergency condition and comfort of our patients, thereby not only improving their individual treatment outcomes but also enhancing their quality of life and treatment satisfaction.

Emergency Facilities at Omni Hospitals 

Our emergency response (ER) team, comprising ER doctors and support staff, are extensively trained in quickly determining the type of stroke a person has suffered (ischemic or hemorrhagic). The goal of treatment is to provide accurate imaging diagnostic support to understand what course of treatment may be appropriate for them. We offer advanced treatments, such as intravenous tissue plasminogen activator, intra-arterial intervention, and, most importantly, intravascular mechanical retrieval of clots from major brain arteries to achieve exceptional patient outcomes. 

We also provide emergency surgical intervention for stroke offered by a multidisciplinary team of surgeons who provide neurosurgical evaluation of haemorrhagic stroke patients, as well as perform potentially lifesaving endovascular procedures, including removal of artery-blocking blood clots, coiling of cerebral aneurysms and carotid artery stenting, as well as open cerebrovascular surgical procedures, such as aneurysm clipping, carotid endarterectomy and removal of arteriovenous malformations.
