Item description for The Stroke Clinician's Handbook: A Practical Guide to the Care of Stroke Patients by Robert N. Gan & N. Venketasubramanian Ramani...

There are numerous elaborate and comprehensive textbooks and guidelines on stroke. However, busy clinicians are constantly bombarded with new knowledge for an infinite number of medical conditions. It becomes a challenge for them to tease out the important information that will help guide them through the care of the patient they have right before them.

This handbook was thus conceptualized with both the busy clinician and the stroke patient needing urgent treatment in mind. By providing only essential information in a standard and user-friendly layout, it assists clinicians in making real-time decisions quickly and effectively with actual step-by-step guides on specific issues relevant to the care of stroke patients. The use of this practical handbook is instinctive with the topics arranged in chronological order, simulating the actual clinical scenario from a prehospital setting, consultation in the emergency room, admission to the hospital, to secondary prevention in the clinic. With contributions from over 30 stroke experts in Southeast Asia, this handbook is widely applicable in different medical settings and will certainly appeal to stroke specialists, general practitioners, nurses, paramedics, and medical students alike.
