ischemic strokes could be focal or global
By Neuer S. on 16. April 2017 for Ischemic Stroke: Characteristics

very clear explanation and easy to understand great examples and easy to follow

Lots of detail lacking
By Hamed S. on 16. March 2017 for Hemorrhagic Stroke

Not sure if there will further talks on haemorrhagic stroke but significant omissions evident. For example target for BP lowering, discussion of management of complications incl vasopasm, raised ICP, seziure prevention. Work up of patient wasn't clear ie the use of lumbar punctures in high clinical suspicions but ct equivocal

Decent but flesh out the management
By Hamed S. on 16. March 2017 for Ischemic Stroke: Treatment

I enjoyed the series on ischaemic stroke but it would have been great to discuss in more depth the secondary management of stroke in particular blood pressure targets and agents with the most supportive evidence for use (e.g ACE-I). I also note that there was an omission about the best way to manage BP in the acutely hypertensive patient post stroke. Despite theses as always good taster of the topic. I appreciate the challenge of work that goes into producing these contents

By Rashmi G. on 07. February 2017 for Stroke: Introduction

The lecture was concise and to the point. Dr Carlo's Style of lecturing always provides the right amount of emphasis, and his use of anecdotes help in visualising the patient. Any Iecture by Dr. Carlo Raj Is always highly recommended.
