Acute Ischemic Stroke
Stroke Prevention and Recovery: The Ultimate Video Guide

While children are still being taught to learn from books and the written media, it is my impression that the personal habits of many qualified physicians, coupled with current continuing medical education documentation requirements, are resulting in less and less medical knowledge being acquired the old-fashioned way, ie, by reading books. It sometimes seems that books on clinical medicine have become relegated to the domain of medical students, postgraduate trainees, and book reviewers.
