Acknowledgments

This publication and the December 1996 Acute Stroke Symposium were supported in part with public education grants from Genentech Inc., Janssen Pharmaceutica, and an endowment from the estate of Portia Rae Parkins. The recommendations recorded in this volume represent the consensus of opinion expressed at the symposium by a wide range of participants, including public, private, and voluntary organizations involved in the effort to improve the delivery of care and treatment to acute stroke patients.

As scientists and health care providers continue to refine the current treatments for stroke and develop other potential treatments, some of the guidelines presented in this volume may change. The recommendations developed during the Symposium and presented in this volume are intended to help health professionals make more informed decisions concerning the care of their individual patients. As always, those responsible for direct patient care will base their treatment decisions primarily on information they gather from their patients and the circumstances specific to those patients. This volume will assist in making those decisions but is not intended to replace the expertise available only to those in direct contact with stroke victims.

The editors wish to acknowledge the following for their help in developing and publishing this volume:

Michael D. Walker, M.D., NINDS, for his creative management of the NINDS stroke research program that has generated, and continues to generate, important insights into the causes, diagnosis, and treatments of stroke, and for his intellectual contributions to the design and implementation of the Acute Stroke Symposium.

Margo Warren, NINDS, for Symposium planning.

Ann Haynos, NINDS, for editorial assistance.

Rayne Ann Wood, NIH, for publication design.

Betty Hebb, NIH, for original cover art.

Pamela Winters Jones dedicates her contributions to this publication to her mother Thelma M. Winters who died on March 7, 1997, of a stroke.
