Paediatric stroke

Shree Basu is a Paediatric Intensivist in Sydney. She discusses how Paediatric stroke presents, what neuroimaging is required and what interventions are available, including thrombolysis and the role of endovascular thrombectomy.

The blood pressure targets in ICU are discussed; while there isn’t strong evidence to support these targets, it does make sense and is a separate hot topic in adult strokes, especially post ECR!

This podcast was recorded at the Brain Symposium which took place in March 2023.
