Cincinnati Edition speaks with UC Health researchers Dr. Aaron Grossman, assistant professor in the Department of Neurology and Rehabilitative Medicine and a UC Health physician; and Dr. Matthew Smith, a neuro-critical care fellow and UC Health physician; about their just-completed report that offers guidelines for providing lifesaving treatment to stroke patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Their study addressed whether current stroke treatment protocols should be modified to keep both patients and staff safe from the spread of COVID-19.   Their work was published in Stroke, a journal of the American Heart and American Stroke associations.
