    00:01 So let's wrap up this video series.

    00:03 So, continuity of care is the most important goal of the patient transfer.

    00:07 That's why I really hope you took advantage of practicing SBAR before you looked at our answers.

    00:13 Bedside report is an effective way to hand off patient care responsibilities.

    00:18 That way, the 2 nurses can visualize the patients together and verify orders, IV rates, and patient status.

    00:25 The first 24 hours after receiving thrombolytic drug requires frequent and close monitoring of a Critical Care Unit.

    00:32 If possible, avoid any arterial sticks and other procedures that would cause bleeding for the first 24 hours.

    00:40 Especially if the patient is safe without them, try to avoid them at all costs.

    00:45 Now, blood pressure management in acute and ischemic strokes is different than with acute hemorrhagic strokes.

    00:51 And don't forget, blood pressure management in acute strokes is different than chronic strokes.

    00:57 Thank you for watching our video today.
