From the Back Cover:

Unique in approach and content, Bowman and Giddings blend accounts of personal history and professional medical illustrations to present the science behind strokes. Extensive illustrations provide visually compelling accounts of the blood supply of the brain, the brain areas affected by different types of strokes, and the resulting clinical signs observed in the patient. Succinct and easy-to-read, chapter topics include an introduction to strokes and patients, observations from a stroke victim, general information about strokes, atherothrombotic infarction, imbolic infarction, cerebral hemorrhage, and more. Whether a caregiver, student, or a patient, this resource is ideal for understanding what has happened and where, when strokes occur.

Features:
  • Extensive illustrations provide accurate visualization of the blood supply.
  • Unique personal observations ― made by actual stroke victims, persons in the medical profession, and laymen ― provide a true-to-life picture of a stroke's impact.
  • Emphasis on the blood supply as it relates to strokes makes it applicable and valuable to students and professionals alike.
  • Bulleted presentation of clinical signs and symptoms presents important information in an easily digestible format.
