Manage episode 239844549 series 133027
Following on from our previous Roadside to Resus episode on Stroke, in this episode we look at the rapidly evolving area of stroke management.
In the last 2 decades stroke management has progressed beyond recognition and keeping up with the evidence and available therapies is a significant challenge. We cover the following treatments, looking at the risks and benefits of each, with the goal of being able to offer our patients the best possible outcomes;
- Thrombolysis; both prehospitally and in hospital
- Decompressive Hemicraniectomy
- Acute blood pressure management
As always we’d love to hear any thoughts or comments you have on the website and via twitter.
