According to the National Institutes of Health, 42% of stroke patients wait as long as 24 hours before going to the Emergency Room. This delay places the brain at increased risk for injury.
If you or someone you know experiences any of these symptoms, call 911 immediately. When strokes are diagnosed and treated early, disabling effects can often be prevented thanks to advances in new drug therapies.
