Mafraq Hospital launches stroke initiative

12 July 2010

Abu Dhabi's Mafraq Hospital has opened a new 24 hour Thrombolysis Service for acute stroke patients. The new service aims to ensure a 'Door-to-Needle' time, the time a patient first arrives at Mafraq Hospital to the time of administration of the thrombolytic agent, of 60 minutes at any time of day. The hospital is to launch a public awareness campaign to ensure everyone is aware of the importance of going to hospital as soon as they experience symptoms that may suggest a stroke.
