Do you know what to do if you or someone you’re with is having a stroke? The answer is simple, really: call 911, or otherwise get to the nearest hospital as quickly as possible. Don’t mess around: the sooner you get help, the better your chances for recovery.
The larger question is, how do you know if you’re having a stroke?
You have to know the signs of stroke so you’ll be ready to take action if it ever happens to you. That’s what KnowYourSigns.org, the microsite we created in cooperation with our partners at the St. Claire Group for St.Vincent Health, is all about. The site also lets people know that St.Vincent Neuroscience Institute is one of America’s leading centers for stroke care.
Don’t mess around: if you have a stroke, time lost is brain lost. If you don’t know the signs of stroke, go take a look at KnowYourSigns.org.
