Case Study

J.S. is a 72-year-old woman with a long history of atherosclerosis. One afternoon, her grandson found her sitting in a chair staring blankly into space.

She was leaning to the right, drooling, and had been incontinent of urine.

She was able to focus her eyes on him when he spoke to her, but she was unable to verbalize a response.

She was transported to the local hospital and diagnosed with a stroke.


•What questions could be asked of J.S.’s family to help determine the cause of her stroke as thrombotic, embolic, or hemorrhagic (i.e., questions to assess risk factors for each type of stroke)?••Based on the scenario described above, which brain hemisphere (left or right) suffered the ischemic damage? What other manifestations of this stroke location would likely be apparent?

•What medical therapies might be used to manage this current stroke and/or to prevent another one?••What information might be appropriate to give J.S.’s family about the expected recovery process after stroke?
