Brain Attack Team

The Brain Attack Team (BAT) is a multi-disciplinary effort of various departments including the Neurosciences, Emergency Medicine, Radiology, Laboratories, Pharmacy, Nursing Services, and Medical Social Services. The BAT protocol outlines time-specific steps to ascertain the diagnosis of ischemic stroke and ensure timely administration of medications for patients who meet the eligibility criteria for intravenous thrombolytic therapy; this BAT protocol is applicable to both pay and service patients.

The activation of the BAT code allows for hastened neuroimaging, processing of laboratory exams, and acquisition of rTPA vials. The protocol also aims to standardize the documentation of stroke cases and rTPA utilization in PGH. Through this effort, the Department of Neurosciences hopes to improve stroke care and outcomes.
