Synopsis

Since publication of the first edition of this book, new treatments have become available in acute intervention for stroke and new evidence has been uncovered regarding prevention and neurorehabilitation. Designed for the entire team at any stroke center, including physicians, nurses, therapists, and administrators, The Stroke Center Handbook: Organizing Care for Better Outcomes, Second Edition delivers a timely update of the latest developments in this critical area. Exploring best practice management protocols, the content covers initial presentation, rapid response and emergency interventions, clinical and administrative procedures, and neuro-critical care.

Highlights of the second edition include: * The significant contribution of telemedicine to stroke treatment * Improved organization of EMS systems to route patients directly to stroke centers * New devices available for intra-arterial thrombectomy * The impact of CT and MR perfusion and angiography on case selection for advanced therapy * New pharmaceutical therapies for the prevention of stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation * Advances in stroke rehabilitation techniques The authors of the book are pioneers in developing stroke centers and regional networks that have provided diagnosis and treatment to thousands of patients. Their expertise enables practitioners to establish and efficiently manage a facility and to participate more effectively as part of a multidisciplinary care team-providing stroke victims with the best possible outcome.
