Dear Colleagues,

I am investigating the care of acute stroke in pediatric patients and hope
to gain some insight into how others are practicing nationally and
internationally. This is a very regimented part of adult emergency medicine

1. Does your pediatric emergency department or emergency department that
cares for pediatric patients have a stroke activation team specifically for
2. Does your institution have a clinical guideline specifically for
pediatric stroke? Does it vary significantly from care of adults and their
3. If said guideline exists would you be willing to share information with

appreciated. I wish all a wonderful holiday season and good new year.
