Abstract

Stroke is an emergent, treatable condition with the amount of disability often linked to the response time for treatment. Acute ischemic stroke often can be reversed successfully with the clot lysis drug recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rt-PA), if initial evaluation is immediate and intravenous infusion begins within 3 hours of stroke symptom onset. The advanced practice nurse plays a key role in identifying acute stroke, recommending therapies, facilitating treatment, and preventing and monitoring complications.
