One of the three largest emergencies that can claim lives is ‘Strokes’.  It has been reported that around 600 cases are registered for stroke every day in the state of Gujarat. Out of 15 lakh estimated stroke cases reported in India annually, Gujarat has a major share. To strengthen the network and mobilise nursing homes, nurses, and support staff, Marengo CIMS Hospital has launched the Strokologist Programme to train the community of physicians, critical care specialists, and ICU and ER doctors and empower them with the skills for timely diagnosis and treatment as soon as a stroke patient is brought under their care. The Programme is led by Dr Mukesh Sharma, HOD Stroke Specialist, Marengo CIMS Hospital.

Dr Raajiv Singhal, Managing Director & Group CEO, Marengo Asia Hospitals said, “High-end drugs for clot bursting have been available over the last almost three decades. Yet only two percent of stroke patients are administered these drugs. We are skilling the doctors in understanding the outcome of these drugs and administering them appropriately.”

With the participation of a network of 45 doctors and nursing homes, the team of Neurosciences at Marengo CIMS will train and certify doctors and nurses in batches to bring down disabilities or fatalities in stroke patients significantly. Advanced technology will play a pivotal role in the education of doctors and empower them with tools to be applied for quick responses to critical conditions.

Each of these primary networked centres with the technology will help doctors download the data fed into the systems and prepare them to plan the best line of treatment for the patient.
