Course Overview:
Stroke remains the 5th leading cause of death and disability in the United States, and yet there are many times where clinicians struggle to find the exact cause. The diagnosis of stroke is often finalized only after a risk factor analysis and diagnostic images that are done post event. Atrial fibrillation is increasing in frequency in our population due to longevity and other risk factors. This possible cause of stroke should be investigated thoroughly in order to prevent future events and assist patients and families in self-management and stroke prevention. Nursing staff play a crucial role in educating patients regarding risk factors for prevention and signs/symptoms of stroke. Recent development of many new oral anticoagulants demands that the bedside nurse knows which are appropriate for stroke risk reduction in atrial fibrillation.
