Frequently Asked Questions

What is a stroke?

A stroke occurs when blood flow to an area of the brain is cut off. When this happens, brain cells are deprived of oxygen and begin to die. When brain cells die during a stroke, abilities controlled by that area of the brain, such as memory and muscle control, are lost. 

What are the symptoms of a stroke?

F.A.S.T is an easy way to remember the signs of a stroke. If you see someone displaying the following symptoms, call 9-1-1 immediately. 

F: Face Drooping - One side of the face is drooping or numb. When the person smiles, the smile is uneven. 

A: Arm Weakness - One arm is weak or numb. When the person lifts both arms at the same time one arm may drift downward. 

S: Speech Difficult - You may notice slurred speech or difficulty speaking. The person is unable to repeat a smiple sentence correctly when asked. 

T: Time To Call - If someone shows ANY of these symptoms, even if they go away, call 9-1-1 immediately. Make note of the time the symptoms first appeared. 

It is also wise to keep an eye out for the following symptoms: 

  • Weakness in an arm, hand or leg. 
  • Numbness on one side of the body.
  • Sudden dimness or loss of vision, particularly in one eye. 
  • Sudden difficulty speaking. 
  • Inability to understand what someone is saying. 
  • Sudden dizziness or loss of balance. 
  • Sudden, excruciating headache, unlike headaches you've had before, or a severe headache accompanied by nausea and vomiting. 
  • Seizure. 

If someone is having a stroke, should I drive them to the ER?

If you suspect that a family member or loved one is exhibiting symptoms of a stroke, you should ALWAYS call 911. Once EMS personnel have arrived they will monitor vital signs and provide medical treatment during transport to the nearest hospital. EMS will also notify the receiving emergency department of the patient's condition so the facility is better able to prepare for the patient's arrival and begin life-saving treatment more rapidly. Remember: 2 million brain cells die each minute a stroke is untreated, so minutes matter.
