PROGRAM:  Advances in Stroke Treatment
Tina Gilson introduced Dr. Tarvinder Singh, Neurologist. He grew up in India. He received a degree in Technology and Engineering. After working at Oracle and Microsoft, he changed his profession to the brain. He studies at University of Washington Medical and joined Providence Regional Medical Center in 2016.
As Dr. Tarvinder Singh grew up in India, he had a strong desire to explore the world and how things work. His father passed away when he was 12 years old. His family and him had to learn how to survive. As he become older, he had to decide if he should study or work. He decided to study technology and worked for several software companies.
He wanted to do more by becoming closer to people and align with service. The question was “Use your Brain or Your Heart”. Dr. Singh decided to come to Everett and work for Providence Regional Medical Center after his residency.
Stroke is the biggest cause of disability in the world. It is a bad disease. There are two kinds of strokes; Ischemic Stroke and Hemorrhagic Stroke. He discussed both types.
Dr. Singh reviewed how to identify a stroke. B-E-F-A-S-T is one way to determine if someone is having a stroke.
He provided history of the medical treatment of strokes in the 1990. In 1990, we did not have treatment for a stroke. Rather people sat and comforted them – Medical Management. In 1995, IV tPA medication provided a chance for people to get better after suffering a stroke. In 2015, Mechanical thrombectomy was a new technique. This technique is Endovascular Clot Removal – the ability to find the clot and remove it.
Treatment in the early hours of a stroke is important. The longer a person waits to be treated then it is less likely to recover. Providence Regional Medical Center is working to diligently to help the recovery of a stroke.
The goal is for Providence Regional Medical Center to be a Comprehensive Stroke Center. The hospital treats 700 patients per year. The future is to ramp up Research & Education, Build a Dedicated Neuro ICU, and have Outpatient Clinics.
President John thanked Dr. Tarvidner Singh for being our guest speaker. He adjourned the meeting at 1:00 PM
