How to spot a stroke
Being aware of stroke symptoms and seeking prompt medical care can be the difference between life and death, full recovery, and long-term disability.
If you notice the following symptoms, BE FAST in seeking immediate medical attention:
Balance: Is the person suddenly having trouble with balance or coordination?
Eyes: Is the person experiencing sudden blurry or double vision in one or both eyes?
Face drooping: Are one or both sides of the face drooping or feel numb while smiling?
Arm weakness: Does one arm feel weak or numb when the person raises both arms?
Speech difficulty: Does the person have slurred speech, or is it hard to understand what they are saying? Can he or she repeat simple phrases?
Time to call the medics: Time is the most important factor. Call emergency services for immediate medical attention if any of the above symptoms are observed.
The stroke team utilizes advanced treatment techniques to facilitate prompt treatment, faster recovery, and better patient outcomes. We offer patient-centric treatments that account for the patient’s age, current medications, and symptoms. These include:
- Angioplasty and stents
- Mechanical thrombectomy
- Clot-dissolving medications
