Stroke Guidelines are a comprehensive diagnostic tool. Guidelines are used to establish quickly whether or not a patient is experiencing an acute stroke, the stroke’s range and severity, and most effective treatment. The following guidelines include many common factors. Variation between the guidelines is determined primarily by their use in research and practice specialties.
