Follow-up Pilot Study After a First Stroke

2014-08-27 03:19:24 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This is a randomized follow-up study after discharge from a stroke unit after a first stroke. The patients are randomized either to follow-up at a special out-patient stroke unit or with their general practitioners. The hypothesis is that follow-up with specialists is superior to follow-up with general practitioners. Endpoints are mortality, recurrent stroke and handicap measured with different scales.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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

Drugs intended to prevent damage to the brain or spinal cord from ischemia, stroke, convulsions, or trauma. Some must be administered before the event, but others may be effective for some time after. They act by a variety of mechanisms, but often directly or indirectly minimize the damage produced by endogenous excitatory amino acids.

Drugs used to specifically facilitate learning or memory, particularly to prevent the cognitive deficits associated with dementias. These drugs act by a variety of mechanisms. While no potent nootropic drugs have yet been accepted for general use, several are being actively investigated.

The diagnosis and treatment of human responses of individuals and groups to actual or potential health problems with the characteristics of altered functional ability and altered life-style. (American Nurses Association & Association of Rehabilitation Nurses. Standards of Rehabilitation Nursing Practice, 1986, p.2)

Number of patients who need to be treated in order to prevent one additional bad outcome. It is the inverse of Absolute Risk Reduction.
