Summary
"The second edition of this practical, pocket-sized reference has been updated to include the groundbreaking changes to stroke care protocols. Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death in the United States today and leading preventable cause of long-term disability. This resource fills in the gaps left in neuroscience content in nursing school and streamlines an often intimidating, but critically important, area of care. Featuring diagnostic tests, cutting-edge treatments, and standards for best practice, Fast Facts for Stroke Care Nursing, Second Edition distills the lengthy and often complex national stroke care guidelines into a clear, easily digestible format. This guide can be used as a staff education resource or as a concise review for SCRN or SNRN certification exams, as well as a refresher for nurses seeking the essentials of stroke care. Content starts with stroke care improvements, covers moving through acute care to postacute care, and finishes with practical pointers for performance improvement"--Publisher's description
