How to share preventative measures for Stroke Awareness Month

Stroke . Part II



How do you know if you or someone else is having a stroke ?  Much of it depends on the severity of a stroke.


A common warning may be a TIA (transient ischemic attack) This is short lived temporary slurring of speech or blindness, numbness, or even a loss of speech entirely.  This may last several seconds to several minutes, with a complete recovery.  A complete stroke may occur in minutes, hours, or days.

Stroke is not uncommon. Stroke is a medical emergency...call 911.  Do not attempt to drive to a hospital.

Being proactive and knowledgeable may save a life.


May is Stroke Awareness Month
