"No doubt a miraculous bounce back," said Pastor William L. Robinson who suffered from a stroke while preaching in West Memphis three years ago.
Thankfully he was the first person to take advantage of a life saving virtual stoke program by UAMS.
"I can tell anybody there's life after stroke," he said.
"Our neurologists are now able to beam in over video," said Michael Manley, the Director of the Arkansas saves program at UAMS. "And see patients and work with physicians to determine whether the patient is a candidate for TPS which is a clot busting drug for stroke patients."
Through an online network of video chatting four neurologists are able to diagnose patients having strokes all across the state."
"Time is critical when it comes to those kinds of strokes time is very critical," Manley said.
You only have three hours to administer a life saving drug from the time of on-set.
In the five years this program has been offered at UAMS they've increased the percentage of patients getting this early diagnosis from 1% to 30%.
