Cleveland Clinic Starts Ambulance for Stroke Patients

My opinion: I'm glad to see that they're doing this for the public - I think this will benefit people in all locations around town, as time is of the essence when treating strokes.  I am surprised, though, that a regular ambulance cannot give the same care.  I suppose they may be able to treat heart attack victims, but maybe the emergency personnel aren't trained to handle strokes.  Is it possible to utilize this mobile stroke unit in a regular ambulance?  And if not, should there be other ambulances with different specialty treatments, like for seizures or asthma attacks?  Feel free to comment.
