The best aspects of the book are that it is easy to read and factual, and it includes a wide range of information... I enjoyed the book. It is easy to read and navigate. Nurses will find it extremely helpful and valuable in the clinical setting. This is a good addition to a clinical library." Score: 98, 5 Stars.--Doody's Medical Reviews

This highly practical, pocket-sized reference for stroke care nurses provides quick, bedside access to the most current guidelines for diagnostic tests, state-of-the-art treatments, and best-practice standards. This resource distills lengthy and often complex national stroke care guidelines into clear, bite-size pieces of information. It also explains the rationale behind stroke standards, making them easier to embrace and incorporate into practice.

The book is organized consistently to foster rapid information retrieval. Each chapter includes objectives and such helpful features as "Fast Facts in a Nutshell," targeted segments that provide critical information at a glance. The guide also serves as an instructive resource for nurses not specializing in neurology but who are increasingly being called on to care for stroke patients. The book is also a helpful resource for stroke program coordinators and as a review for SCRN and CNRN certification exams. Key Features:

Reflects current standards of the American Heart Association, the American Stroke Association, and The Joint Commission Provides crucial information at a glance about diagnostic tests, state-of-the-art treatments, and best-practice standards Distills lengthy and complex national stroke care standards into clear, concise information Includes a comprehensive review of diagnostic studies Serves as a concise review for SCRN and CNRN certification exams "
