Stroke is a medical emergency that requires rapid diagnosis and treatment. The hallmark of a stroke is the abrupt interruption of cerebral blood flow to a specific brain region, resulting in neurologic deficits. Fluctuation of functional defecits after stroke onset or a brief deficit known as transient ischemic attack (TIA) suggests tissue at risk for infarction that may be rescued by reestablishing perfusion. The time of onset is critical if thrombolytic therapy is to be administered. Onset is typically sudden. Common clinical presentations are sudden onset of severe headache, lethargy or coma, fever, vomiting, seizures, and low back. From the Washington Manual of Medical Therapeutics, 35e
