Stroke is a common presentation to all Emergency Helath care providors, with around 150,000 strokes occurring in the UK each year! Our impact and treatment can be hugely significant and in this podcast we’re going to conver the topic in some depth, and importantly cover some of the new Guidance published by NICE in their ‘Stroke and transient ischaemic attack in the over 16’s diagnosis and initial management’ document that was published in May of this year.
We’ll be running through
- Risk factors
- Assessment; both prehospitally and in hospital
- Stroke mimics
As always we’d love to hear any thoughts or comments you have on the website and via twitter.
