You know how precious your time is with loved ones. But do you know the importance of time when it comes to stroke? In a typical ischemic stroke, the brain loses two million cells a minute. Every hour without treatment, the brain ages 3.6 years. To combat the devastating effects of stroke in adults and children, Baptist Health has created the Stroke & Cerebrovascular Center, a new regional epicenter for advanced treatment of strokes, aneurysms and other brain conditions.
Stroke is a brain attack, cutting off vital blood flow and oxygen to the brain. Would you recognize the symptoms of stroke? Would you know what to do?
