Stroke: early management

Practice guidelines - Posted on Jun 23 2010
  • Identify relevant information for the general public in order to improve recognition of warning signs and increase awareness of the need for urgent treatment;
  • Optimise the initial prehospital and hospital care pathway of patients with suspected stroke and improve management for the largest possible number of stroke patients;
  • Reduce the frequency and severity of the functional disorders associated with stroke through early multiprofessional management, implemented as quickly as possible in a stroke unit (SU), or failing this, in a hospital with an organised care pathway for patients with suspected stroke, in coordination with a SU;
  • Improve the practices of the SAMU-Centre 15 dispatching physician, emergency physicians and all professionals involved in the early management of stroke (including TIAs).
