Anne W. Alexandrov, PhD, RN, CCRN, ANVP-BC, FAAN is a nurse physiologist who focuses her research on integrated systemic and intracranial hemodynamics. Her physiologic research is in the area of blood flow augmentation in hyperacute stroke, innovatively using devices such as intra-aortic balloon pumps and external counterpulsation, gravitational techniques, and manipulation of oxygenation/ventilation. She is currently funded by an NIH NINDS – SPOTRIAS award to study the use of external counterpulsation in acute ischemic stroke patients that are not candidates for reperfusion therapy. Dr. Alexandrov also explores methods to support improved Stroke Center performance, including improvement in the delivery of reperfusion therapies such as intravenous tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) and intra-arterial rescue procedures. Dr. Alexandrov was funded by the Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA) from 2007-2010 for the development and implementation of the NET SMART – AP (Neurovascular Education and Training in Stroke Management and Acute Reperfusion Therapies – Advanced Practice) program, the world’s first vascular neurology fellowship education/clinical training program for Advanced Practice Nurses in the world. NET SMART-AP has demonstrated an 8.3% absolute increase in tPA administration at the Stroke Centers supported by its Fellows and Graduates; this is the most robust effect ever achieved from an intervention targeting improvement in tPA treatment rates, documenting the value of advanced practice neurovascular nurses. Dr. Alexandrov was recently funded for the second time by HRSA to develop and implement the NET SMART – Junior Program. Similar to the NET SMART – AP Program, Junior also targets improvement in tPA treatment rates, but focuses its education and clinical development on expert front-line staff nurses capable of identifying patients that are likely reperfusion therapy candidates. As an expert cardiovascular acute care nurse, Dr. Alexandrov has interest in topics that relate to Emergency and/or Critical Care, as well as the pre-hospital EMS systems that support rapid access to care. She is a member of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Neurologic Device Panel (2012-2015), a member of the Board of Directors of the Association of Neurovascular Clinicians (ANVC), and certification exam architect for the ANVC acute neurovascular general and advanced practice certification examinations.
