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.
