Information on the care of ischemic stroke, subarachnoid hemorrhage and intracerebral hemorrhage is concisely presented. The pathophysiology of stroke is described. The text recounts the methods and processes by which neurologists, neurosurgeons, emergency physicians, neuroradiologists and intensivists organize stroke care today. The basic scientific rationale and the clinical scientific data supporting these methods of care delivery are presented
