A pilot study of normobaric oxygen therapy in acute ischemic stroke.


BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Therapies that transiently prevent ischemic neuronal death can potentially extend therapeutic time windows for stroke thrombolysis. We conducted a pilot study to investigate the effects of high-flow oxygen in acute ischemic stroke. METHODS We randomized patients with acute stroke (<12 hours) and perfusion-diffusion "mismatch" on… (More)
