Thrombolysis Update

 
 

 

 

 

 

 


There has been some confusion regarding Question 4 of the Paramedic Primary Assessment for thrombolysis.

 

It should be noted that the current Primary Assessment states (asks):

 

 

4.                  Can you confirm that the symptoms started less than 3 hours ago?

 

 

As more audit data becomes available, this limit (and that for age?) may be reconsidered but until that time this three-hour limit will continue to be recommended.
