ConclusionBoth neurologic and medical complications were common in majority of stroke patients. But the management protocol for stroke patients was sub-optimal and lagging behind the recommended guidelines due to lack of skilled personnel, appropriate treatment and diagnostic agents. The clinical team involved in the care of stroke patients should make preparations to take preventive measures that will save a lot of lives.

Non –vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs), such as dabigatran, are widely used to prevent ischemic stroke in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation. Nonetheless, stroke occurs in 1–2% of patients, and the use of NOACs may increase the bleeding risk for patients who are receiving a cute treatment of intravenous thrombolysis (IVT) or endovascular thrombectomy (EVT). Idarucizumab, a monoclonal antibody developed to bind dabigatran, has been proven safe and effective for patients with uncontrolled bleeding or for patients planning to receive emergent procedures.

This study evaluated the utility of such data for assessing dynamic CA capacity. Physiological recordings of cerebral blood flow velocity, heart rate, end-tidal CO2 and beat-to-beat blood pressure from acute ischaemic stroke (AIS) patients (n = 46) containing ectopic heartbeats of varying number (0.2 to 25 occurrences per minute) were analysed. Dynamic CA was determined using the autoregulation index (ARI) and the normalised mean square error (NMSE) was used to evaluate the fitting of the step response between BP and CBFV to Tiecks ’ model. We fitted linear mixed models on the CA variables incorporating ectopic burde...
