Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Terri E Kiernan, MSN, FNP-BC, CCRN, CNRN (Mayo Clinic Arizona)
Description: This set of three pocketcards provides clinicians an algorithm to guide the care of the acute stroke patient from arrival in the emergency department to secondary stroke prevention.
Purpose: Physicians may be uncomfortable looking after the acute stroke patient. Creating a tool such as this increases the opportunity for more patients to receive appropriate acute stroke treatment.
Audience: This is a great tool that can be used by all, including students, nurses, midlevel care providers, residents, and emergency room physicians.
Features: This tool provides a step-by-step algorithm to care for acute stroke patients with ease, covering tPA administration, imaging, stroke syndrome anatomy, investigations for etiology, and secondary prevention.
Assessment: This set of cards covers more than the usual set. It is a useful contribution.
