Reversal Agents for Angioedema LIsted on Stroke Thrombolytic Therapy Order Set

Warm greetings!

Does your facility's order set for Stroke alteplase orders also include reversal agents for angioedema?

During my facility's stroke survey, the surveyor recommended adding reversal agents for angioedema as part of the standard Stroke Thrombolytics Therapy order set. She stated there is an increasing incidence of angioedema (1 to 5% incidence) with alteplase, most notably in patients also on ACE Inhibitors.

If you would be willing to share any information or Stroke-related order sets that include reversal agents for angioedema, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much!

Julie
