Description

In this lecture, Dr. Crandall will help you understand the time-sensitive nature and the initial evaluation and diagnosis of strokes.  She hopes to help physicians understand their critical role in the care and management of stroke patients by helping them become familiar with stroke intervention and by being familiar with the workup of stroke patients in different populations.  She also feels it is important for physicians to become familiar with primary and comprehensive stroke centers near them.

  • Understand the time-critical nature of stroke
  • Understand initial evaluation and diagnosis of stroke
  • Become familiar with stroke intervention for a potential reversal of neurologic deficits
