New app to improve stroke treatment 

News Content

The Newcastle team who helped develop the FAST – face, arms, speech and time – system to identify a stroke are now piloting an app to ensure the best treatment for stroke patients. An iPad app, called DASH II, is being trialled in Newcastle and North Tyneside hospitals to help weigh up the risks and benefits of different treatments for people who have had an ischaemic stroke, caused by a blood clot on the brain. The development of the DASH II app has been funded by the NIHR Programme Grant for Applied Research.
