Stroke Syndromes || Evaluation of Stroke Patients: Stroke Responder or Detective?

The Miami Neuroscience Symposium Online will cover topics related to surgical management, stroke management, neurocritical care, neuro-imaging and neuro-oncology. The expert faculty will engage participants through complex cases and novel treatment strategies. Our goal is to share the most innovative and evidence-based clinical practices available in order to optimize patient outcomes in these areas of neuroscience.

Stroke Syndromes

This presentation will go over the clinical and radiological characteristics of the main stroke subtypes as characterized by their mechanism of stroke, as well as common pitfalls in clinical data interpretation. It will also detail what the cortical symptoms are and their clinical relevance in acute stroke care.

Learning Objectives
  • Explain the clinical and radiological substrate for major stroke subtypes and its clinical implications.
  • Recognize cortical signs in a patient who has had a stroke.
  • Describe small vessel disease vs. non-small vessel disease based on clinical and radiological features. 

Evaluation of Stroke Patients: Stroke Responder or Detective?

The symptoms of brain ischemia may be transient, lasting seconds to minutes, or may persist for longer periods of time. This lecture will describe and evaluate neurologic symptoms that may be consistent with stroke.

Learning Objectives
  • Identify key information to evaluate an acute stroke.
  • Correlate assessment and diagnostics to possible stroke syndromes.
  • Differentiate among different stroke subsets.

Target Audience

Adult and Pediatric Neurologists, Neurosurgeons, Stroke Neurologists, Neuroradiologists, Diagnostic Radiologists, Critical Care Physicians, Neurointensivists, Emergency Medicine Physicians, Internal Medicine Physicians, Interventional Neuroradiologists, Family Physicians, General Internists, Critical Care and Neuroscience Nurses, Neurosurgery Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Respiratory Therapists, Dietitians, Clinical Pharmacists, Rehabilitation and Pain Management Specialists, as well as other specialists interested in the field of neuroscience.
