May is American Stroke Month and Better Speech and Hearing Month

Learning the signs of stroke will help you know when to get emergency help. It is critical to get that help quickly as the window of opportunity to treat a stroke is about 3 hours. Medical advances to treat stroke have advanced significantly over the last 10 years. These treatments differ depending on the type of stroke an individual has. 85% of all strokes are ischemic in nature, meaning a blocked blood vessel or rupture in the brain. These can be treated by medication adminstered via IV called tPA.
