Acute Stroke Management

Acute stroke management requires a time-sensitive and multidisciplinary approach. Rapid recognition of stroke symptoms, such as sudden onset of facial droop, arm weakness, or speech difficulties, is crucial for activating emergency medical services. Intravenous administration of tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) within the first few hours of symptom onset remains a cornerstone of acute ischemic stroke treatment, aiming to dissolve the clot and restore blood flow to the brain. For eligible patients, mechanical thrombectomy, a procedure to physically remove the clot, has shown efficacy in improving outcomes. Alongside these interventions, supportive care, close monitoring, and post-stroke rehabilitation contribute to optimizing recovery and reducing the long-term impact of stroke on patients' lives.
