✏Stroke Medicine Book Summary : Stroke is an enormous health problem. It is the third major cause of death, and the major cause of adult neurological disability. As many as a quarter of women in their 80s may suffer stroke. It represents a huge financial burden for the NHS, costing more than heart disease. Stroke care has historically been poor in many places but a revolution in care is taking place as a result of specific treatments such as stroke units and thrombolysis, which have been shown to markedly improve outcome. This has led to many countries reorganising the way they offer stroke care. Stroke Medicine is a practical handbook for the practising physician. Written by a multidisciplinary team of three practising consultants from a leading UK stroke service, it provides an up-to-date and easily accessible source of information on all aspects of stroke care from acute care, through to rehabilitation and secondary prevention. Designed to be used both on the ward and in the outpatient room, it provides a practical approach to managing the stroke patient, and is an invaluable source of information for stroke physicians, neurologists, geriatricians and other specialists involved in the care of stroke patients. It will also prove to be a useful handbook for consultants and doctors in training. Designed to cover the curriculum of the UK Specialist Stroke training programme for clinicians in training, it is likely to provide similar levels of coverage for emerging stroke training programmes inother parts of the world.

Knowing and treating the most common risk factors for stroke such as hypertension, diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia, atrial fibrillation, and obesity may reduce the occurrence of stroke sub-stantially. In the last decades, there has been tremendous progress in the development of noninvasive diagnostic techniques like ultrasound MRI, CT angiography, CT perfusion, as well as new effective therapeutic strategies for acute ischemic stroke which established vascular neurology as one of the most progressive fields in medicine. This publication provides the reader with the most recent updated advanced knowl-edge on the practical clinical approach to stroke medicine. It covers essential and practical information on the pathophysiology and epidemiology of stroke, new diagnostic techniques which allow for better diagnosis and identification of various subtypes of stroke, and new therapeutic strategies for acute stroke and transient ischemic attack.

✏At a Stroke Book Summary : At a Stroke-a Stroke Survivor's Journey' gives a rare insight, from a patient's perspective, in to the trials, tribulations and humour, associated with Stroke recovery.--"Wake up! It's 2017. Happy New Year!"The year had started for me when Angela woke me up from a deep sleep. On the TV, the screen was filled by the spectacle of thousands of pounds worth of fireworks, gyrating, cavorting and bursting across the London sky in a kaleidoscope of many colours. Each explosion ecstatically cheered on by thousands of revellers. Over the years, I too have similarly celebrated and have collected memories of popping champagne corks and other revelries, but now I am much more attracted to 'a quiet night in'.Perhaps, if I had known what surprises the year had in store for me, it would have been wiser to have continued snoozing, and allow it to carry on without me.I like to think of myself as a pragmatist. I sincerely believe that there is no option other than to manage the cards as they are dealt, though, at that moment I didn't know that the 2017 pack contained so many jokers. From my perspective, it was to become a year like no other on this earth. It was scary.Like many other people, I was overwhelmed and bored by the apparent surfeit of fake news and the never-ending flow of 'doom and gloom' fed daily via the media. Globally, it seemed, toxic rhetoric by the likes of Trump, Putin and Kim Jong Un threatened the world with imminent annihilation, whilst politicians in the UK were diverted from establishing compassionate policies and the protection of vital services by the time-consuming and seemingly impossible 'Brexit' dilemma. Could it get any worse? It could and it did!With the year still in its infancy, I was, despite, to my knowledge, being symptom-free, diagnosed to have bowel cancer and in July I had to undergo an operation to remove part of my colon. I, fortunately recovered well, and I was, after this temporary interruption, soon back on my merry way, until November, when I was once again unexpectedly stopped in my tracks by a kidney stone that left me in considerable pain and kicking my heels at the A&E Department of my local Hospital."Enough is enough" I had thought. "I don't want another year like this, I'm glad it is nearly over!"But nothing is over 'til the Matron sings!
