Stroke Case Study

Stroke Case Study

Unit II Case Study


Your unit was called to the home of a 72-year-old male, who complained of an inability to speak and left-sided weakness. His family stated, “He was just sitting in his recliner, watching the television when he began having difficulty speaking and lifting his left arm.” His daughter further stated that she did not attempt to stand the patient but instead immediately called 911. She denies any recent illnesses.

Your initial evaluation reveals the patient’s symptoms began approximately 8 minutes prior to your arrival. He has a marked increase in left-sided weakness in his arm and leg. He also has signs of right-sided facial drooping with a right-sided conjugate gaze and marked difficulty speaking. A check for vital signs was completed with a blood pressure of 146/92, a pulse of 116, rate of 20, SpO2-96%, EKG shows sinus tachycardia without ectopy.

Code Stroke is an important process to help decrease nerve damage for patients who have sustained a stroke (cerebral vascular accident or brain attack). Identification and proper treatment of patients in the prehospital setting has shown success in the outcome of patients who have experienced a stroke. For this assignment, discuss the following:

the possible type of stroke the patient sustained,
the patient’s neurological findings,
prehospital emergency treatment for the patient, and
research concerning pharmacological basis of clot-breaking medications and cerebral angioplasty for successful stroke treatment.
Your final submission must be a minimum of two pages, and you must use a minimum of two outside sources (one of the sources can be your textbook).

Adhere to APA Style when constructing this assignment, including in-text citations and references for all sources that are used. Please note that no abstract is needed.
