The ARH emergency teleneurology service covers all neurological emergencies occurring in any location in the hospital, including acute stroke. While stroke/telestroke may be the most familiar reason for emergency consult, our neurologists are deeply experienced in handling all varieties of neurologic issues. All ARH hospitals are capable of administering IV thrombolytics for stroke and our administration times are among the fastest in the state and consistently faster than the national average.
