When it comes to a stroke, every second counts.
A stroke, or "brain attack", occurs when blood flow to an area of the brain is cut off. Without blood, brain cells are deprived of oxygen and begin to die. Receiving immediate care for a stroke is crucial. Treatments given during the first three hours after a stroke can greatly reduce or even reverse the effects of brain damage.
According to the National Stroke Association, two million brain cells die every minute during stroke, increasing the risk of permanent brain damage, disability or death. The stroke care professionals at Easton Hospital are committed to diagnosing and treating strokes quickly and efficiently, when every second counts.
