|This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Brain ischemia article.
This is not a forum for general discussion of the article's subject.
|Brain ischemia was a good articles nominee, but did not meet the good article criteria at the time. There are suggestions below for improving the article. Once these issues have been addressed, the article can be renominated. Editors may also seek a reassessment of the decision if they believe there was a mistake.|
|Current status: Former good article nominee|
|Ideal sources for Wikipedia's health content are defined in the guideline Wikipedia:Identifying reliable sources (medicine) and are typically review articles. Here are links to possibly useful sources of information about Brain ischemia.
|This article is of interest to the following WikiProjects:|
|This article was intensively edited as a Fall 2008 / Spring 2009 educational assignment: WikiProject AP Biology 2008.
We invite you to join us to make further improvements and changes. We are not claiming any sort of ownership. This is a project in collaboration.
I just want to know exactly what microvascular ischemia is??Girl
- Ischemia means lack of blood supply. Microvascular means it involves small blood vessels. WhatamIdoing (talk) 05:58, 22 January 2008 (UTC)
I really need help adding an image to this article. This image is at http://rad.usuhs.edu/medpix/medpix_image.html?imageid=20376. Your help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks, --Saunc2011 (talk) 15:50, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
The citations that I have placed in with the additions I have made to the article are listed by the number that preceeds them. The citation may be for a whole paragraph of information. Thank you. --Saunc2011 (talk) 20:37, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
I am now working on this article for my AP biology project. If you have any suggestions or interests in this topic just let me know on my talk page! :-) All of the project information can be located through the banner at the top of this page. Thanks, --Saunc2011 (talk) 02:50, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

Just a few things I noted while I was glancing through -- random things you'll probably get hit with upon GAN:
- From Background: I, personally, would put the different types of ischemia in the Related conditions section.
- Try to incorporate your See also section into the article itself
- The infobox could use some expanding, and yes, a picture would be great here, but isn't absolutely necessary
- Diagnosis section would be a nice addition
- Also, should the image that you have in your infobox, from the stroke page, be at the top of the article? It seems to be specifically describing Focal ischemia. Strombollii (talk) 12:31, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
- Your Causes section discusses the results of brain ischemia. This would be better placed under a heading such as Prognosis or integrated with Pathophysiology (check with medmos/the doc's mess on that one).
- The information under Management needs sources.
- Really, I prefer Treatment to Management, as "Management" implies the results of living with ischemia: i.e. therapy, rehabilitation as a result of the stroke. But hey, that's more of a stylistic preference
- Prevention section seems viable, given the causes, but that may be a mis-observation.
Removed ref. from article
- Chang, Steven; Doty, James; Skirboll, Stephen; Steinberg, Gary. Cerebral ischemia . cgi.stanford.edu. URL last accessed February 26 2006.
- Ramirez, Robert; Gulli, Laith. Encyclopedia of Neurological Disorders: Hypoxia. health.enotes.com. URL last accessed February 26 2006. (PDF format)
These two references didn't appear to be be used in the actual article. (If I remember correctly, they were there before the re-write?) Since they aren't foot-noted there really isn't a reason for them to be in the text. Someone might want to put them in some sort of "see also" section? --Yohmom (talk) 19:44, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
This article is unclear and needs to be better structured. It is about the the global classification that involves regional ischemia ( TIAs, and ischemic strokes ) and globals ischemias ( secondary to hypotensives crises )--Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 05:36, 5 April 2009 (UTC) Here is one classification system from UPTODATE BRAIN ISCHEMIA
- Large vessel disease
- Small vessel disease
- High-risk cardiac source
- Potential cardiac source
- Aortic atherosclerosis
- Systemic hypoperfusion
- Blood disorders
- TOAST classification
Brain ischemia can be devided into three different groups: thrombosis, emobolism, and hypoperfusion. Each one of these than has a number of causes Embolism can occur due to atrial fib, infectious endocarditis etc, thrombosis can occur in large or small vessels secondary to diabetese and age. Systemic hypoperfusion occurs with MI, with sepsis. --Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 00:16, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
- WP: MEDMOS doesn't account for a Background section: the info you have could maybe be categorized under Pathophysiology? Strombollii (talk) 12:51, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
- is it too serious?? my grand father suffers from brain ischemia. docters said that there is insufficient supply of blood to brain. and there is a clot part in brain. he is like 76 year old,has obesity,is like height of 6 feet.pleasetry to answer. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 19:39, 9 June 2011 (UTC)
Hello fellow Wikipedians,
I have just modified one external link on Brain ischemia. Please take a moment to review my edit. If you have any questions, or need the bot to ignore the links, or the page altogether, please visit this simple FaQ for additional information. I made the following changes:
