Brief description Most strokes are ischaemic due to occlusion of an artery producing rapid reduction in blood flow to the brain. Positioning a patient ‘lying flat’ (i.e. ‘head down’ to be level with the body, which increases the blood flow to the brain, may improve recovery and reduce disability. This study aims to determine whether ‘lying flat’ head positioning is beneficial in patients with acute stroke. The results could lead to a cheaper, safer and more effective stroke care in the world.
