Amsterdam, the Netherlands – Royal Philips, a global provider in health technology, recently announced it will showcase the company’s latest advances to support the treatment of stroke patients at the 14th Annual World Stroke Congress to be held on 26-29 October 2022 in Singapore.
Philips’ end-to-end stroke care solutions help advance stroke care through early detection and an optimized workflow that reduces the time to treatment. To connect information, technologies, and people across the stroke care pathway, enabling care teams to work quickly and act decisively, Philips works closely with stroke care partners such as MedTech stroke care company Nicolab, who will join Philips at the 2022 World Stroke Congress.
Globally, one in four adults over the age of 25 will suffer a stroke in their lifetime, making it the leading cause of disability and the second leading cause of death worldwide . The key to improving outcomes for stroke patients is to provide treatment as quickly as possible. Physicians in an emergency stroke setting are fighting the clock and under intense pressure to make optimal treatment decisions. Despite the imperative for speed, care teams currently lose valuable time due to gaps in communication, information, and access to stroke expertise.
“This World Stroke Day we are committed to improving stroke care. At each vital step, from early detection to treatment and recovery, we are collaborating with caregivers to speed up the stroke care pathway, because every minute matters for stroke patients.” Angelique Balguid, Head of Marketing for Neurovascular Portfolio at Philips said.
