Abstract

Individual reprints of this article are not available. The entire Symposium on Cerebrovascular Diseases will be available for purchase as a bound booklet from the Proceedings Editorial Office at a later date. The treatment of acute ischemic stroke has evolved from observation and the passage of time dictating outcome to an approach that emphasizes time from lotus, rapid response, and a dedicated treatment team. We review the treatment of acute ischemic stroke from the prehospital setting, to the emergency department, to the inpatient Hospital setting. We discuss the importance of prehospital assessment and treatment. Including the use of elements of the neurologic examination, recognition of symptoms that can mimic those of acute ischemic stroke, and rapid transport of patients who are potential candidates for thrombolytic therapy to hospitals with that capability. Coordinated management of acute ischemic stroke in the emergency department is critical as well, beginning with non-contrast-enhanced computed tomography of the brain. The advantages of a multidisciplinary dedicated stroke team are discussed, as are thrombolytic therapy and other inpatient treatment options. Finally, we cover evolving management strategies, treatments, and tools that could improve patient outcomes.
