Learn the signs and symptoms of stroke! Inspired Health Group Physician Assistant, Lauren Zanda, shares the simple acronym for stroke awareness.
According to Mayo Clinic, an ischemic stroke occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is interrupted or reduced, preventing brain tissue from getting oxygen and nutrients. Brain cells begin to die in minutes. A stroke is a medical emergency, and prompt treatment is crucial. Early action can reduce brain damage and other complications.
It is important to know the signs and symptoms of a stroke, not only for yourself but for your family members as well. We typically refer to the acronym F.A.S.T.
