Determining the treatment plan and how to successfully manage a patient suffering from an acute ischemic stroke can be challenging for a registered nurse (RN) in the emergency department. Using a mnemonic in the treatment process assists in reducing medical errors and increases the likelihood of making positive clinical outcomes. Mnemonics sum up complex strategies into relevant information that can be comprehensible for users. The authors have created a mnemonic strategy to provide RNs in the emergency department with a structured approach to the pharmacotherapeutic strategies used in treating patients with an acute ischemic stroke. All guidelines used throughout the article are in concurrence.
