abstract

  • The formation of ASTs is quite common at the surveyed programs. Although staffing patterns vary, most teams are led by neurologists or neurosurgeons. The utilization of ASTs varies by facility, but they appear to be useful, with only a modest incremental financial cost. The use of ASTs may assist in providing more rapid medical care to stroke patients and increase the use of some acute therapies. Extension of the AST concept to nonacademic hospitals appears feasible.
