A stroke, or cerebrovascular accident, is an emergency medical condition characterized by an acute compromise of the cerebral perfusion or vasculature. The leading cause of ischemic stroke is hypertension whereas clotting disorders, carotid dissection, and illicit drug abuse are common causes in the younger populations. A quick diagnosis followed by prompt management needs to be set in motion by the interprofessional team members to improve outcomes for those with stroke. Stroke continues to carry high morbidity and mortality. For those who survive, the recovery is prolonged and the risk of another stroke is high. Most patients following a stroke remain disabled or have partial neurological deficits that prevent them from being active in the workforce.
