Updated Stroke Pathway 11/2017

Here is the updated Stoke Pathway as of 9/11/2017. Only changes are an increase in the onset of symptoms cut off time from 4 to 6 hours for Out of Hospital calls, and from 5 to 7 hours for those presenting at triage. This primarily based on recent data from ongoing trials (DAWN and DEFUSE3) that show benefit to thrombectomy in a selected group of late presenters.
