Every 40 seconds, someone in the U.S. has a stroke. Every 3-4 minutes, someone dies of a stroke. Cut down on the time taken to respond to a stroke-based emergency, and you can literally save more of your patient’s brain from serious damage. “Time is Brain Or A STROKE of Bad Luck: Are You Up-to-Date?” provides vital practice essentials that will help you respond promptly and confidently to stroke syndromes.

This presentation begins with information regarding the incidence, complications, anatomy, risk factors, demographic considerations, and management fundamentals of stroke syndromes. It then provides indispensable details about how to distinguish between the different kinds of strokes (i.e., ischemic, cryptogenic, hemorrhagic, intraparenchymal hemorrhage, and transient ischemic attack). You will be refreshed on brain and cardiovascular anatomy and be able to identify the clinical signs of a stroke, differential diagnoses, key features of care specific to each classification, imaging considerations, and more. With citations of the most current medical literature, detailed case studies, and specific details regarding the multiple pharmacological options in stroke management, this session is an essential reference tool.

From the BEFAST acronym to circadian patterns, join us for a session that will arm you with essential knowledge and help you respond to stroke emergencies in a manner that cultivates the best patient outcomes possible.
