Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

Improving pre-hospital therapy of HLB disorders

There is compelling evidence that pre-hospital therapy of both stroke and MI can improve outcomes and yet, with the exception of aspirin for MI, almost no care is administered pre-hospital in the U.S. NHLBI has a major stake in improving pre-hospital care because there already are sufficient data to show that currently available interventions would improve outcomes if they could be administered in the prehospital setting. There is also the need to spur development of novel agents that can be readily administered in the pre-hospital setting, as for example, by auto-injector. There is also the need to assess the impact of increasing the diagnostic capabilities in the pre-hospital setting.
