Acute Ischemic Stroke Initiative

Acute Ischemic Stroke Toolkit

With the release of the June 2015 AHA/ASA Focused Update of the 2013 Guidelines for the Early Management of Patients With Acute Ischemic Stroke (AIS) Regarding Endovascular Treatment, the stroke treatment landscape changed the way large vessel/ severe strokes should be treated. To help professionals know how to adapt in the changing clinical environment and support the best treatment outcomes for stroke patients, the American Stroke Association has developed an Acute Ischemic Stroke Treatment Kit.
