    Google “stroke protocol” there is a lot of different hospitals on there. The main thing to know in the case of a stroke is time is crucial. If you have any signs or symptoms get to the hospital ASAP!

    Some signs to look for are: sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arms or leg, especially on one side. sudden confusion or trouble speaking or understanding. Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination, and sudden severe headache with no known cause. Getting to the hospital within 60 minutes can prevent disability.

    To lower your risks of stroke, dont smoke, treat diabetes, eat a healthy diet, be physically active, control a healthy weight, control blood pressure, and have regular check ups.

    Hope I was of some help to ya, good luck!

    A stroke occurs when an artery to the brain becomes blocked or ruptures, resulting in death of an area of brain tissue (cerebral infarction) and causing sudden symptoms.
    * Most strokes are ischemic (usually due to blockage of an artery), but some are hemorrhagic (due to rupture of an artery).
    * Transient ischemic attacks resemble ischemic strokes except the symptoms resolve within 1 hour.
    * Symptoms occur suddenly and can include muscle weakness, paralysis, abnormal or lost sensation on one side of the body, difficulty speaking, confusion, problems with vision, dizziness, and loss of balance and coordination.
    * Diagnosis is based on symptoms, but imaging and blood tests are also done.
    * Recovery after a stroke depends on many factors, such the location and amount of damage, the person’s age, and the presence of other disorders.
    * Controlling high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, and high blood sugar levels and not smoking help prevent strokes.
    * Treatment may include drugs to make blood less likely to clot or to break up clots and sometimes surgery.
