Difficult situation: This is a complex question and depends upon the wishes of the patient (often only known by immediate family members by prior conversation), or if the patient has a living will or advance directive that clearly states their wishes. Without this information, the answer depends on (among many things) the severity of the stroke, the age of the patient and the estimated chances of a meaningful recovery.
