NETT Network Hub
The Department of Emergency Medicine has won a grant from the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the National Institute for Neurologic Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) to become a hub for the Neurologic Emergencies Treatment Trials (NETT) Network. Henry Ford joins one of only 11 centers nationwide to become a regional hub.
The mission of the Neurologic Emergencies Treatment Trials (NETT) Network is to improve outcomes of patients with acute neurologic problems through innovative research focused on the emergent phase of patient care.
The Emergency Department is preparing to study the pre-hospital treatment of seizures and the ED management of blood pressure on patients with intra-cerebral hemorrhage. We are currently evaluating the use of high dose albumin for acute ischemic stroke in the ALIAS trial.
