In the article by Summers et al, “Comprehensive Overview of Nursing and Interdisciplinary Care of the Acute Ischemic Stroke Patient: A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association,” which published ahead of print on May 28, 2009, and appeared in the August 2009 issue of the journal,1 a correction was needed.
On page 2920, in Table 10, the entry in the first column for “Eligible for thrombolytic therapy, Pretreatment, Systolic >185 mm Hg or diastolic >110 mm Hg,” the titration dose for nicardipine drip in the corresponding second column was incorrectly listed. Therefore, “…titrate up by 0.25 mg/h at…has been changed to, “…titrate up by 2.5 mg/h at…”
This correction has been made to the current online version of the article, which is available at http://stroke.ahajournals.org/cgi/content/full/40/8/2911.
