Stroke Webinar Series Blue Sky Telehealth

Stroke Mimics

Dec 9, 2020, 10 a.m. Mountain Time (US and Canada)

A common conundrum for stroke clinicians is the stroke mimic: a patient who presents with stroke-like symptoms but is not in fact having a stroke. Many of these patients go on to receive alteplase. What history and assessment clues do neurologists use to help them distinguish mimics vs actual strokes? How can we best care for these patients without missing alteplase candidates?


  • Discuss the most common stroke mimics
  • Explain key factors in distinguishing actual strokes from stroke mimics
  • Discuss processes to reduce over-calling of stroke alerts without missing eligible patients
