Over the last several years, thrombectomy for large vessel occlusions (LVOs) has emerged as a standard of care for acute stroke patients. Furthermore, the time to reperfusion has been identified as a predictor of overall patient outcomes, and much effort has been made to identify potential areas to target in enhancing preintervention workflow. As medical technology and stroke devices improve, nearly all time points can be affected, from field stroke triage to automated imaging interpretation to mass mobile stroke code communications. In this article, we review the preintervention stroke workflow with specific regard to emerging technologies in improving time to reperfusion and overall patient outcomes.
