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.
