Stroke is a leading cause of disability and death

Early and rapid diagnosis of stroke is essential for identifying the optimum treatment strategy. Recurrence can be prevented if the underlying mechanism is understood. The earlier appropriate rehabilitation programmes can be started, the better the chance of a strong recovery.

Stroke provides the foundations for practice that will enhance your patient’s chances of recovery. The expert authors provide the evidence-based roadmap you need to provide the best bedside care including:

 Bedside evaluation of the stroke patient

  • Neurovascular imaging
  • Treatment of acute ischemic stroke and  hemorrhagic stroke
  • Diagnosis of stroke mechanism and secondary prevention
  • Post stroke recovery
  • Telemedicine for the acute stroke patient

 Clinical in approach, practical in execution, Stroke will help you diagnose and manage your patients more effectively.

“It was a pleasure to review this book, particularly after going through many stroke books as a recent trainee, and I found its scope and content refreshing.  I will certainly pass this along to other trainees and I recommend it highly.”  (Doody’s, 30 August 2013)
