Our “Brain Attack Team” (BAT) provides emergency consultations 24/7, seeing all acute stroke patients within 5 minutes of BAT pager activation.  In FY 2022, 938 BAT calls were placed to the neurology department; historically, about 45-55% of these patients are found to have a stroke diagnosis, and a subset of those are candidates for emergency treatment to stop the stroke or limit the damage from stroke. Our ischemic stroke patients may present as a BAT candidate or may be admitted with a more subacute stroke; in FY 2022, 22.2% of all our ischemic stroke patients received IV tPA or catheter-based treatment. A total of 589 patients were admitted to UH with a diagnosis of stroke (ischemic and hemorrhagic).
