Position of stroke patient’s head before surgery may improve neurological function


“Many thrombectomy patients have delays until the procedure can be started, whether due to slow internal hospital processes, multiple patients arriving at the same time or if the patient needs to be transferred to another hospital,” said lead study researcher Anne W. Alexandrov, Ph.D., a professor of nursing and neurology at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis. “Optimizing blood flow to the brain while patients are waiting for surgery, is essential to minimize the risk of neurological deficits and ultimately disability.”
