Beschreibung

Primary care physicians are the first to diagnose transient ischaemic attacks (TIAs), and are the doctors who can undertake a considerable amount of stroke prevention treatment. This book fills the primary care physician's need for a short clear text explaining how to accurately diagnose a TIA, determine what investigations are indicated and how and when to intervene to reduce the risk of stroke. Short chapters are written in point form with clear diagrams and figures, each chapter written by an expert in the field. Stroke is a brain attack and a major cause of disability. Active intervention can prevent stroke especially in high risk groups.



Klappentext

Comprised of short chapters written in a succinct and bulleted style, with clear diagrams and figures to illustrate where appropriate, Stroke Prevention in Clinical Practice is ideal for the busy doctor looking for a comprehensive pocket-sized guide to the everyday management of transient ischaemic attacks (TIAs) and strokes.

Strokes are the major cause of disability in the UK, and also the third biggest killer, but awareness and active intervention can prevent the dangers of strokes especially in high-risk groups. By starting with an explanation of TIAs, which so often preceed strokes, this work aims to make more physicians aware of the treatment regimens necessary to manage TIAs.

It is vital to be aware of the early signs of TIAs, and be able to recognise them as soon as possible since a considerable amount of stroke prevention treatment stems from knowing the warning signs and taking action. This book discusses how to accurately diagnose the leading causes of strokes, and offers comprehensive treatment advice to avoid future recurrences, with all chapters written by leading experts in the field.



Zusammenfassung

Stroke is a brain attack and a major cause of disability and the third biggest killer. Active intervention can prevent stroke especially in high risk groups. Patients who have transient ischaemic attacks (TIAs) are at an increased risk of stroke and should be targeted. Primary care physicians are the first to diagnose the TIA, and are therefore vital in helping reach these people; they are the doctors who can undertake a considerable amount of stroke prevention treatment.

Stroke Prevention in Clinical Practice fills the need for a short clear text to explain how to accurately diagnosis a TIA, determine what investigations are indicated and how and when to intervene to reduce the risk of stroke.

Short chapters written in point form with clear diagrams and figures, each chapter written by an expert in the field.
