Triage of Stroke Patients in the Ambulance with EEG by Dr. Wouter Potters

Triage of Stroke Patients in the Ambulance with EEG by Dr. Wouter Potters

Event Date:

Event Location: 

Millions of people suffer a stroke each year. Endovascular thrombectomy (EVT) dramatically improves prognosis after stroke, but only if done rapidly. Since EVT is performed in specialized hospitals only, there is an unmet clinical need to identify stroke patients eligible for EVT in the ambulance. Bringing such patients straight to an EVT hospital improves prognosis. Unfortunately, no triage instrument for the hyperacute phase of stroke is available. With the EEG setup presented in this webinar, paramedics could triage stroke patients and reduce the time to therapy.

The presenter is Dr. Wouter Potters who is the technical physician in the department of Neurology and Clinical Neurophysiology at Amsterdam UMC. He obtained his PhD in the field of MRI research. Dr. Potters has extensive clinical experience in nerve and muscle ultrasound, intra-operative neuromonitoring during deep brain stimulation and EEG. Besides his clinical duties, Dr. Potters is responsible for the technical and IT infrastructure of the clinical neurophysiological department within Amsterdam UMC. Dr. Potters is a co-initiator of In 2018, Dr. Potters and Dr. Coutinho won the Amsterdam Science and Innovation award for their idea of stroke triage using EEG.

The registration deadline is 24:00 (CET) on November 23rd.
