According to the National Stroke Association, strokes are the fourth leading cause of death in the United States. Even if an individual survives a stroke, it can lead to permanent impairment. Depending on the extent of damage to the brain, a stroke may leave a person with deficits such as vision loss, memory problems and/or paralysis or weakness on one side of the body.

Endovascular procedures. Endovascular procedures may be used to treat certain hemorrhagic strokes. The doctor inserts a long tube through a major artery in the leg or arm and then guides the tube to the site of the weak spot or break in a blood vessel. The tube is then used to install a device, such as a coil, to repair the damage or prevent bleeding.

U Care was developed in partnership with Lacuna Health, a subsidiary of Kindred Healthcare, to follow up with patients after they leave the hospital. Registered nurses with U Care reach out to patients by phone on a regular schedule to monitor the patients’ recovery progress, check their medications, ensure they have made appropriate follow-up appointments and answer any questions or health concerns that arise. The nurses have access to the patients’ health records and can escalate any concerns to hospital staff or physicians if a patient requires further clarification or intervention. The program pilot, which began in June, will follow 250 stroke patients for 45 days after discharge, whether they went home or to a rehab facility for recovery.
When a patient comes to the hospital with stroke symptoms, it’s crucial to make a proper diagnosis quickly in order to begin treatment to minimize the effects of a stroke. Florida Hospital Ocala formerly Munroe Regional Medical Center's stroke care team delivers potentially life-saving care for ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes and can perform various treatment options.
Decision: A ‘decision’ regarding the type of treatment needed is the next step in caring for a patient with a stroke. Information, such as the type of stroke which has occurred and the time from onset of symptoms, is considered before a treatment decision is made. The severity of the stroke may also play a role in deciding what the most appropriate treatment will be. The patient and family members should also be informed of the risks and benefits of treatment options.
These documents have been provided to the American Heart Association by the below hospitals as examples of stroke best practices.  These documents are available only to give you an idea of how some hospitals might use discharge stroke best practices. By including this document on its Web site, the American Heart Association does not represent that these documents are complete, accurate or efficacious, or that it follows all of the American Heart Association guidelines for secondary and primary prevention of cardiovascular events or stroke. Hospitals should design their own stroke best practices based on their own procedures and professional experience.

Le stand a rencontré un gros succès. Il est vrai que la population sénior en France croît de façon significative : 12 millions de français ont plus de 65 ans. Selon l’OCIRP, on compte 1,2 millions de personnes âgées dépendantes. L’âge moyen de perte d’autonomie s’élève à 83 ans. Enfin, on compte près de 8,3 millions d’aidants professionnels ou familiaux en France.
Emergency measures. If you take warfarin (Coumadin, Jantoven) or anti-platelet drugs such as clopidogrel (Plavix) to prevent blood clots, you may be given drugs or transfusions of blood products to counteract the blood thinners' effects. You may also be given drugs to lower pressure in your brain (intracranial pressure), lower your blood pressure, prevent vasospasm or prevent seizures.
Before the inspection, we reviewed the information we held about the service. This included the previous inspection report and notifications since the last inspection.
