WHAT IS A STROKE?

 

A stroke is a medical emergency where a blood vessel in the brain bursts, or more commonly, is blocked.  Without treatment, cells in the brain rapidly begin to die.

 

One in six people will suffer a stroke in their lifetime.  

It can be very debilitating and is more treatable than ever before BUT time is critical.  Responding quickly could mean the difference between disability and recovery.

 

BE PREPARED !!

Stroke kills nearly 6.5 million people worldwide every year.  91% of patients who receive treatment of the clot-dissolving drug tPA and a stent retriever within 2.5 hours showed very little or no disability.
