Describes the nature of a clinical study. Types include:
The purpose of this study is to determine whether treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) with positive airway pressure starting shortly after acute ischemic stroke or high risk TIA (1) reduces recurrent stroke, acute coronary syndrome, and all-cause mortality 6 months after the event, and (2) improves stroke outcomes at 3 months in patients who experienced an ischemic stroke.

The overall objective of our network of investigators is to develop and conduct clinical trials and other large multi-centre studies in childhood stroke. Our specific aims are:
Objective 1: To ascertain in a prospective, consecutive cohort study the numbers of newborns and children with ischemic stroke, their stroke sub-types and risk factors, their current treatments and outcomes within our centers. These data will provide the rationale and feasibility data for our group to design and implement the initial randomized controlled trials (RCTs) in paediatric stroke as well as other fundable grant proposals.
Objective 2: To develop standardized data collection forms and an appropriate database with web-based data entry from multiple study sites.
Objective 3: To develop standardized protocols for (1) diagnosis, (2) investigation of risk factors, (3) outcome assessment and 4) antithrombotic therapies of neonates and children with arterial ischemic stroke (AIS) and cerebral sinovenous thrombosis (CSVT)
Objective 4: Obtain grant funding to support and conduct additional multi-centre IPSS sub-studies
The purpose of this study is to verify that high Premature Ventricular Complex (PVC) burden is associated with increased risk of stroke and/or Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA), to examine outcomes such as stroke/TIA, atrial fibrillation/flutter, and all-cause mortality associated with PVCs, and to evaluate whether PVCs are associated with development of appendage dysfunction.
