To observe the antiinflammatory effect and nursing effect of atorvastatin on acute cerebral infarction, 180 patients with acute cerebral infarction who were treated in the Chengdu Fifth People’s Hospital were selected as research subjects. They were divided into the control group (90) which received the routine treatment and the research group which was given atorvastatin treatment (90 cases). In addition, the patients in the research group were provided with a comprehensive nursing intervention program, while the control group was given routine nursing mode. The therapeutic effects and nursing effects of the two groups were compared. By comparing the serum lipid-related indices of the two groups, it was found that the patients in the research group had a significant advantage over the control group. Through observing and comparing the levels of markers of immune inflammation, the improvement in the serum tumor necrosis factor level, IL-6 and intercellular adhesion molecule 1 concentrations in the research group was more significant, P<0.05. In addition, the comprehensive life quality evaluation score and FMA exercise ability score of the research group showed significant advantages, P<0.05. For patients with acute cerebral infarction, atorvastatin treatment can produce good antiinflammatory effect and the treatment effect can be significantly improved after adopting scientific nursing measures.
