Stroke is an enormous health problem. It is the third major cause of death, and the major cause of adult neurological disability. As many as a quarter of women in their 80s may suffer stroke. It represents a huge financial burden for the NHS, costing more than heart disease. Stroke care has historically been poor in many places, but a revolution in care is taking place as a result of specific treatments such as stroke units and thrombolysis, which have been shown to markedly improve outcome. This has led to many countries reorganizing the way they offer stroke care.
Stroke Medicine is a practical handbook for the practicing physician. Written by a multi-disciplinary team of three practicing consultants from a leading UK stroke service, it provides an up-to-date and easily accessible source of information on all aspects of stroke care from acute care through rehabilitation and secondary prevention. Designed to be used both on the ward and in the outpatient room, it provides a practical approach to managing the stroke patient and is an invaluable source of information for stroke physicians, neurologists, geriatricians, and other specialists involved in the care of stroke patients. It is also a useful handbook for consultants and doctors in training.
