Record ID 32006001399
Authors' results and conclusions: The evidence for the effectiveness of telemedicine for the early detection of acute ischaemic stroke, followed by prompt treatment with tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) is limited. However, there is a good evidence base for successful outcomes for stroke patients when they are treated with tPA.
