Description:

Awareness and preparedness for potential complications in the aftermath of acute stroke is as important as initial treatment to achieve favorable clinical outcomes. Complications of Acute Stroke: A Concise Guide to Prevention, Recognition, and Management is the first book to focus exclusively on specific post-acute stroke complications that require timely and urgent attention. This practical, evidence-based guide is written for clinicians who provide in-hospital care to stroke patients and covers the broad range of medical and neurological issues that may manifest in the first 24 to 72 hours following ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke.

This book will assist neurologists, neurosurgeons, intensivists, hospitalists, and other team members in the optimal management of acute stroke patients. It provides a roadmap for assessing risk and monitoring, recognizing, and managing emergent problems that can lead to neurological deterioration or worsening. Chapters by specialists on the frontlines are formatted with structured headings that detail pathophysiology, preventive measures, identification, and management strategies. For quick and targeted reference at the point of care, boxed “Key points”, tables, flowcharts or algorithms, and associated imaging are also included.

  • Structured format for quick access to essential content
