Overview Every 40 seconds someone in the United States has a stroke with nearly one-quarter of them having had a previous stroke. The majority are ischemic strokes and about 90% of strokes are attributed to modifiable risk factors such as hypertension, obesity, hyperglycemia, smoking, atrial fibrillation and hyperlipidemia with an elevated blood pressure being the most potent risk factor. In this activity Michael D. Gooch, DNP, ACNP-BC, FNP-BC, ENP-C leads you through the risk factors, clinical guidelines and formulating a plan of care for the suspected stroke patient who presents for emergency care.CE Credit Instructions
