Ischemic stroke accounts for 87% of all strokes and remains a leading cause of death and disability in the United States. Early evaluation and management is critical for good outcomes. The neurocritical care team may be the first responders to in-hospital strokes and will become involved in the management of more complicated issues involved in stroke care. As such, this chapter is split into two sections: the first focuses on acute treatment of acute ischemic strokes (AIS) and the second discusses intensive care unit management of AIS.
