Warlow’s Stroke: Practical Management 4th edition (PDF) is a practical etextbook; based on a problem-oriented workflow; that will improve patients’ likelihood of full recovery from stroke and prevent future strokes from occurring. Stroke is the leading cause of adult disability and is in the top 5 causes of death worldwide. Warlow’s Stroke: Practical Management 4e PDF takes a problem-oriented approach and addresses the questions posed by a stroke patient in the order they are likely to present in a clinical practice; for instance; ‘Is it a stroke?’; ‘What caused it?’; ‘What sort of stroke?’; and ‘What can be done about it?’.
Beginning with chapters phrased as questions; the ebook walks the reader through a standard clinical workflow; exploring the practical assessment and skills required at each stage of patient management. Early chapters cover: locating the vascular lesion; the role imaging should play; identifying the involved arterial territory; and the application thereof.
Subsequent chapters look at what causes a persistent or transient ischemic event; an intracerebral hemorrhage and a subarachnoid hemorrhage. Unusual causes of ischemic stroke and transient ischemic attack are also covered. The ebook then presents a practical approach to the management of stroke and transient ischemic attack; provides ways for professionals to prevent first or recurrent stroke; offers specific treatments for acute ischemic stroke and aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage; and more.
Final chapters of the ebook discuss rehabilitation after stroke; how patients and carers can be supported in the long term and short term; prevention of recurrent stroke; and the organization of stroke services.
