Members of the Connecticut Stroke Task Force have been working with legislators to pass a bill that would create the framework for a coordinated statewide Stroke System of Care, improving the odds of survival for stroke victims. The proposed legislation would improve outcomes for thousands of people by creating an improved system of care where emergency medical services and hospitals work together more efficiently, making a real difference in people's lives. The rapid identification, diagnosis, and treatment of stroke can save the lives of stroke patients and in some cases can reverse neurological damage such as paralysis and speech and language impairments, leaving stroke patients with few or no neurological deficits.
