Managing the Patient with Ischemic Stroke and Hemorrhagic Stroke - Pathophysiology and Presentations

 

Cerebrovascular accidents (CVAs), or strokes, are the 5th leading cause of death in the United States. Patient prognosis and the preservation of functional status is highly dependent on the care they receive early, preferably in the first 4.5 hours. A thorough understanding of stroke pathophysiology is crucial, as is assessing, diagnosing, and determining the appropriate plan of care. With this understanding, clinicians will be better equipped to make the best possible decisions in the provision of care for their patients.
