Thrombolytics for Acute Ischemic Stroke - 2024 Live

July 22, 2024

Thrombolytics options have grown from just alteplase to include tenecteplase, which some centers have adopted while others haven't. While both medications are similar, there is growing evidence that there are quite a few differences in administration, monitoring, and indications for medication use. This new introduction has fractured practice habits between different providers and caused growing uncertainty about how to utilize these medications to the best of their abilities.

Target Audience

  • Physicians
  • Advanced Practice Nurses
  • Physician Assistant
  • Registered Nurses

Learning Objectives

Learners will be able to:

  • Describe the indications for thrombolytics use.
  • Identify high/low-risk settings for use of thrombolytics.
  • Describe the decision-making process for thrombolytics use.
