COPY IN THE "TIPSHEET COPY" FIELD DOES NOT APPEAR ON TITLE SHEETS.*** This book arms any physician with the evidence and tools they need to help patients who have had or at risk of having a stroke in preventing stroke. Market / Audience PRIMARY: Neurologists (18,000 in US) Cardiologists (30,000 in US) SECONDARY: Internists (200,00) About the Book Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the US (with cardiac disease and cancer being number one and two). Annually, 795,000 people in the US suffer a new or recurrent stroke. Approximately 140,000 people die from stroke each year, a figure that has been declining because of what we have learned about daily aspirin, smoking cessation, diet, and surgical procedures to prevent new or recurrent strokes. The 6 million patients alive today who've survived stroke are at the highest risk, yet anyone of a certain age or who has had a "mini-storke," is at higher risk. While more is known than ever about how to prevent stroke, there is still great variability in how stroke prevention is implemented regionally. Challenges in getting patients to comply with stroke prevention measures are also a concern. This book provides an evidence-based approach and practical tools to help any physician help their patients avoid a new or a recurrant stroke.
