STROKE BIOMARKERS: CURRENT STATUS, FUTURE PROMISE

With Robert Christenson

When a patient presents with stroke symptoms, it's important to quickly determine a) if they are indeed having a stroke and b) what type of stroke they are having. If clinicians can quickly answer these questions, they can begin management strategies and therapy in time to potentially improve health outcomes. Unfortunately, the timely assessment of patients with suspected ischemic stroke remains challenging. Brain biomarker assays have the potential, however, to improve early diagnosis of ischemic stroke.

During this informative webinar, you will hear:
~ How stroke is currently classified, diagnosed, and treated
~ The characteristics of an "ideal" biomarker or panel of biomarkers for ischemic stroke
~ What assays currently show promise as potential stroke biomarkers
~ What obstacles must be overcome before these biomarkers can be used clinically

STROKE RECOVERY: TAKING BACK OUR LIVES

By James Becket

Stroke can happen to anyone at any age and at any time. And although it is the fourth leading killer in the United States; more often than not stroke victims survive. The problem is that they suffer a wide range of debilitating effects in the aftermath. The trauma of experiencing a stroke can have as a profound impact on your body, as on your emotional health, and rehabilitation is often difficult and confusing.

Stroke Recovery: Taking Back Our Lives features the experiences and advice of stroke survivors, caregivers, family, friends, doctors, and other allied health professionals. Among the survivors who share candid details of their recovery are Wes Metoyer whose doctors called a ¡§ticking time bomb,¡¨ yet he refused to adapt a healthier lifestyle. Lisa Bibbey¡¦s daughter had a stroke when she was only an infant. Now a toddler, she struggles with cognitive disabilities. Diana Capman Dolan suffered a stroke in 1975 and today is an advocate for patients like herself who lacked any understanding of what recovery meant.

Practical and inspiring, the message throughout the film is one of hope, with many of the film's subjects reiterating that improvement and recovery are ongoing processes.

Stroke Recovery: Taking Back Our Lives is broken down into 19 sections covering topics like the challenge of rehab; the importance of a positive attitude in aiding recovery and beating depression; various types of family and professional support networks; the relevance of spirituality, and regaining an intimate relationship with your sexual partner. It is a comprehensive resource intended to aid stroke survivors and their caregivers.

From learning how to stand and walk, to adaptive technologies, the video illuminates what stroke survivors can do for the best possible recovery. With the help of leading physicians and specialists working in the field of stroke, as well as long time survivors, the filmmakers look at every life area impacted by stroke and identify the very best approaches to restoring ¡X or at least reinventing ¡X your health and your life.

IN-HOSPITAL STROKE: AN EVIDENCE-BASED APPROACH TO RECOGNITION AND MANAGEMENT

By Mark J. Alberts, MD

In-hospital strokes affect an estimated 35,000 to 75,000 people a year, occuring in 7% to 15% of patients already in the hospital for other causes. Strokes that occur in the hospital are often more severe and result in worse outcomes than strokes that occur outside the hospital. Although rapid recognition and assessment of in-hospital stroke are critical to improvedo utcomes, a substantial number of patients experience long delays between symptom recognition and neurologic evaluation. This program highlights the significant morbidity and mortality associated with in-hospital stroke, and details steps for rapid identification, assessment, and treatment, including a review of the new 2007 American Heart Association/American Stroke Association guidelines for the early management of adults with ischemic stroke.

MEDICAL MANAGEMENT OF BRAIN ATTACK AND STROKE

By Marian P. LaMonte, MD, MSN

Stroke or "brain attack" is the third leading cause of death in the United States. Brain attack is a term used to describe the urgency required in treating patients who have early symptoms of a cerebral infarction. It can be defined as the period in the course of a cerebral infarction during which there is potential to reverse its effects. A patient who sustains a brain attack needs to be brought to neurologic attention within the same time frame as a patient who has a heart attack. While the consequences of a brain attack or stroke can be devastating, evidence indicates that timely intervention with thrombolytic therapy can lead to improved patient outcomes. Dr. LaMonte reviews the professional guidelines for rapid clinical assessment and stabilization of a patient who has sustained an acute ischemic stroke, including appropriate use of imaging studies. She also discusses current treatment recommendations, focusing particularly on the roles of tissue plasminogen activator, antiplatelet agents, and anticoagulants, and describes measures to improve recovery and prevent complications. Dr. LaMonte concludes the program by sharing helpful suggestions for reducing a patient's risk of a brain attack or stroke.
