Ongoing assessment of stroke counts is one of the simplest forms of assessment in swimming, however, it may have the most benefit to performance.
When discussing the results of the initial test related to stroke rate and stroke count with the swimmer, attention should also be focused on the increased number of strokes, hence the shorter the distance per stroke as the rate increased.
Stroke counts and distance per stroke comments should be discussed with the swimmer after the race and recorded for future use.

 Acute Ischemic Stroke: Stroke Center at University Hospital, Newark, New Jersey
Ischemic stroke is caused by a blockage in a blood vessel that stops the flow of blood and deprives the surrounding brain tissue of oxygen.
In the absence of oxygen, the brain cells in the immediate area begin to die and release a cascade of toxic chemicals that threaten brain tissue in the surrounding area — the ischemic penumbra.

Ischemic stroke is usually caused by atherosclerosis (fatty lumps in the artery wall), embolism (obstruction of blood vessels by blood clots from elsewhere in the body), or microangiopathy (small artery disease, the occlusion of small cerebral vessels).
As ischemic stroke is due to a thrombus (blood clot) occluding a cerebral artery, a patient is commenced on anticoagulant medication (aspirin and/or clopidogrel or warfarin, dependant on the cause) when this type of stroke has been demonstrated.
Stroke rehabilitation is the process by which patients with disabling strokes undergo treatment to help them return to normal life as much as possible by regaining and relearning the skills of everyday living.

 Stroke   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
In an ischemic stroke, which is the cause of approximately 85-90% of strokes, a blood vessel becomes occluded and the blood supply to part of the brain is totally or partially blocked.
As ischemic stroke is due to a thrombus (blood clot) occluding a cerebral artery, a patient is given antiplatelet medication (aspirin, clopidogrel, dipyridamole), or anticoagulant medication (warfarin), dependent on the cause, when this type of stroke has been found.
Other immediate strategies to protect the brain during stroke include ensuring that blood sugar is as normal as possible (such as commencement of an insulin sliding scale in known diabetics), and that the stroke patient is receiving adequate oxygen and intravenous fluids.

 Stroke
Stroke subtype was classified as total or partial anterior circulation infarct (TACI or PACI), posterior circulation infarct (POCI), or lacunar infarct (LACI), according to the OCSP method.
Presumed cause of stroke was small-artery disease in 5, artery-to-artery embolism in 4, cardioembolism in 3 and undetermined in 1.
The primary outcome of recurrent stroke, myocardial infarction, or vascular death was reached by 133 (14.7%) of 902 patients assigned to ticlopidine and 112 (12.3%) of 907 patients assigned to aspirin (hazard ratio, 1.22; 95% confidence interval, 0.94-1.57).

Stroke is is the 3rd largest cause of death in developed countries.
About 6% of all strokes are due to subarchnoid hemorrhage, either due to vasospasm (ischemic) or intraparenchymal hemorrhage (hemorrhagic) or both.
20% of strokes are hemorrhagic stroke which is due to hemorrhagic transformation of ischemic infarct in 15% of cases; in 10%, it is "spontaneous" intraparenchymal hematoma.

 Stroke count method - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The stroke count method is an input method editor in which the user enters the total number of strokes of a Chinese character, and chooses the desired character from a list that pops up.
This method is sometimes used as a last resort when the user is unable to find the desired character by any other method.
It is not an efficient input method, as it often requires an exhaustive search.

 Postgraduate Medicine: Management of acute ischemic stroke
The primary emphasis in stroke treatment has shifted from localization of the lesion to characterization of the time of symptom onset, the severity of the neurologic deficit, and the radiographic features.
Nonetheless, the benefit seems to apply to a wide range of patients with stroke and may be due to a decrease in mortality from secondary complications and a reduced need for institutional care because of disability (24).
After a stroke, a patient's ability to fully comprehend the risks and benefits of tPA therapy may be compromised by apprehension, aphasia, visuospatial neglect, or altered consciousness.

 High-frequency Coagulation Method -- eCureMe.com
Methods include electrical cauterization, cryocoagulation method, cold coagulator coagulation method, laser surgery, conization, and high-frequency coagulation method.
Electrical cauterization, cryocoagulation method, and the cold coagulator coagulation method have the drawback of not being permanent treatments; laser surgery has the disadvantage of being delicate and difficult to perform, as well as inducing a lot of bleeding.
In the high-frequency coagulation method, the instruments automatically and accurately focus the needed energy to the eroded area and to a depth of 5 mm, which is needed to adequately treat cervical erosion.

 Chinese input methods for computers - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In addition, the methods which require the user to select a character from a menu generally have sophisticated methods for guessing which characters the user intends based on context.
These, especially the latter two, are less frequently used than keyboard-based input methods and, as with even the most advanced English language systems, suffer from relatively high error rates, especially when used without proper “training”, though the error rates are an acceptable tradeoff to many users.
Particular mention should be given to hand-writing recognition systems: Although mostly associated with stylus- and tablet-based systems, it is in fact one of the built-in input methods in Windows XP systems (though Office XP or Office 2003 is required).
