Join TeleSpecialists TeleNeurologist Sam Saha, MD as he shares details about the latest clinical trials supporting imaging-guided thrombolysis and thrombectomy decision-making that have demonstrated net benefit in subsets of patients with unknown onset of symptoms, most commonly after waking up. With wider implementation of advanced imaging augmented by artificial intelligence software, there is an argument for pushing stroke treatment boundaries long established by clinical decision-making alone.

$0.00
Medical professionals play a critical role in identifying persons at risk for falls.  However, despite general knowledge of fall prevention protocols, falls continue to occur, and adults aged 65 and older are the highest risk.  Physicians and nurses have an opportunity to identify the risk factors associated with falling and implement preventative methods to educate patients, families, and caregivers.

The 2020 – 2021 COVID pandemic has led to multiple unexpected outcomes for providers and medical staff on the frontlines of treatment.  In addition to risk and worry over infectious exposure, staff and providers have also had to deal with high census, increased critical care bed usage, the steep learning curve of treatment for a novel illness, as well as novel stressors in their personal lives during this time.  Studies report epidemic proportions of provider and staff burnout, leading to negative mental health outcomes, turnover, poor morale, and in some instances, a desire for staff and p

Intravenous thrombolytics is the mainstay of acute therapy in ischemic stroke.  While alteplase has been FDA-approved for this indication since the 1990s, Tenecteplase has recently gained traction for usage in acute ischemic stroke treatment as well.  This lecture summarizes the existing evidence and practical considerations for use of Tenecteplase in stroke therapy.

Seizure medications have greatly increased in number over the past decade.  This lecture will go over the new categories of medications, the best application of each one, and limitations of use including monitoring parameters.  Both emergent, inpatient, and outpatient topics will be covered to allow for better prescribing practices as most medications started in one setting tend to affect the other two settings.

There is a high rate of recurrent stroke after an ischemic stroke or transient ischemic attack.  Identification and early management of modifiable risk factors, such as hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, cardiac disease, behavioral interventions such as diet, physical activity, and smoking cessation have been shown to be effective in secondary stroke prevention.  An interdisciplinary approach toward aggressive management of these risk factors can be effective to prevent stroke in patients.  This activity addresses the treatment approach and discusses secondary stroke prevention.
