2019-11-13 17:56:43 | BioPortfolio

Summary

An investigator-initiated, evaluator-blinded, prospective, multi centre, before-and-after, effectiveness-implementation hybrid design study to assess the feasibility of essential acute stroke care in a low resource setting

Description

This is a multicentre, before and after, effectiveness-implementation hybrid study design with blinded outcome assessment. Patients admitted to the participating hospitals will be managed under usual care conditions for three months (control arm). This will be followed by the training of the doctors and nurses in those hospitals on essential acute stroke care management. Patient management for the following three months after the training (intervention) will then be assessed to evaluate its impact on the care and clinical outcome of the patients.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Restoration of functions to the maximum degree possible in a person or persons suffering from a stroke.

Sudden death from overwork, most often as a result of acute CARDIOVASCULAR STROKE.

Stroke caused by lacunar infarction or other small vessel diseases of the brain. It features hemiparesis (see PARESIS), hemisensory, or hemisensory motor loss.

A group of pathological conditions characterized by sudden, non-convulsive loss of neurological function due to BRAIN ISCHEMIA or INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES. Stroke is classified by the type of tissue NECROSIS, such as the anatomic location, vasculature involved, etiology, age of the affected individual, and hemorrhagic vs. non-hemorrhagic nature. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp777-810)

A morpholine and thiophene derivative that functions as a FACTOR XA INHIBITOR and is used in the treatment and prevention of DEEP-VEIN THROMBOSIS and PULMONARY EMBOLISM. It is also used for the prevention of STROKE and systemic embolization in patients with non-valvular ATRIAL FIBRILLATION, and for the prevention of atherothrombotic events in patients after an ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME.
