Article

Although most patients with acute ischemic stroke can be managed in an inpatient stroke ward or urgent care setting, about 15% to 20% will need admission to an intensive care unit. These patients require attention to airway and respiratory status, blood pressure, glucose, temperature, cardiac function, and in some cases, management of life-threatening cerebral edema. This review will discuss general principles in the critical care management of patients with acute ischemic stroke and apply these principles to common clinical scenarios.
