Cerebral vascular disease is a common cause of brain impairment, injury, and dementia. Many factors such as blood pressure, cardiac disorders, pulmonary conditions, anemia, and conditions that promote poor circulation lead to cerebral hypoxia.
This module details how to evaluate vascular health through physical examination, laboratory tests, and specialty tests as well as how to evaluate factors that can lead to brain hypoxia.
You will learn a detailed step-by-step clinical exam and how to evaluate biomarkers associated with risk for stroke. We will discuss rehabilitation principals associated with stroke recovery.
This module blends a review of the latest scientific articles with clinical strategies to identify and manage patients with cerebral vascular disease and conditions that lead to cerebral hypoxia.
