Utah Leads Nation in Quick Stroke Treatment

Press Release

May 1, 2013

Utah has the nation’s highest percentage of stroke patients who receive clot-busting drugs within 60 minutes of their arrival in a hospital emergency department, according to new study by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.

The new study measured “door-to-needle” time, or the amount of time it takes to give eligible stroke patients an intravenous dose of recombinant tissue plasminogen activator, known as rt-PA, which dissolves the blood clots in the brain that cause a stroke.

In Utah, the study found that 62 percent of patients in 2012 received rt-PA within 60 minutes, dramatically better than the national average of 43 percent, and significantly better than the any other state.

Stroke is the third leading cause of death in Utah and the leading cause of serious, long-term disability. The data are especially timely during May, which is National Stroke Awareness Month, which is designed to encourage people to understand the symptoms of stroke and how to respond.
