This study is a blinded randomized study. Randomization for treatment/not treatment with remote perconditioning takes place during transportation to the hospital. This is because the investigators' hypothesis states that remote perconditioning is neuro-protective and the effect is proportionally larger with early treatment. As the size of the effect is unknown, the investigators will use multiple magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans to determine the size of a potential neuro-protective effect.
The aims of this study are:
1. To describe method of remote perconditioning in clinical practice regarding feasibility. Pros and cons and potential limitations.
2. To estimate the size of the effect of remote perconditioning in combination with recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rtPa) treatment within four and a half hours of onset of symptoms.
Final inclusion and informed consent takes place after first MRI in patients eligible for rtPA.
Follow-up MRI after 24h and 1 month. Clinical outcome at 3 months.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

In recent several clinical trials, remote preconditioning showed very powerful myocardial protection. However, the myocardial protective effect by remote preconditioning was not evaluated ...
Remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) of the myocardium by limb ischemia/reperfusion may mitigate cardiac damage, but its interaction with the anesthetic regimen is unknown.
Rupture of brain aneurysms is a common cause of death and disability, accounting for as many as 10% of stroke cases in the United States. While much of the resulting injury to the nervous ...

The most effective strategy for reducing acute myocardial ischemic injury is timely and effective reperfusion. However, myocardial reperfusion can induce further cardiomyocyte death (reperfusion injur...

To explore the effects of remote ischemic preconditioning on myocardial injury and prognosis after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients with acute coronary syndrome.
Ischemic preconditioning (IPC) and remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) protect myocardial tissue against subsequent ischemia and reperfusion injury (IRI) and have a high potential to improve patien...
Exercise preconditioning has been shown to be effective in improving behavioral and neuropathological indices after cerebral ischemia. We evaluated the effect of exercise preconditioning, 17β-estradi...
Consultation via remote telecommunications, generally for the purpose of diagnosis or treatment of a patient at a site remote from the patient or primary physician.
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.
An optical disk storage system used on specialized players that combine the functions of computer and CD player in a self-contained box, designed to be connected to a television set and a home stereo for video and sound output. The player is controlled with a hand-held remote unit resembling a television remote control. (J Allied Health 1993 Winter;22(1):131-8)

Stroke - Cerebrovascular Disease (CVA)
A stroke is a serious medical condition that occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off. Strokes are a medical emergency and prompt treatment is essential because the sooner a person receives treatment for a stroke, the less damage is ...
