A. Free WiFi
B. Los Angeles rush hour traffic
C. Ischemic stroke warning signs & symptoms
Answer – C
Knowing these signs & symptoms for ischemic stroke is the first step. Ischemic stroke is the most common type of stroke, where there is a blockage within the artery, preventing blood flow into the brain, causing millions of brain cells to die every minute.
The next step is getting the right care — know where your comprehensive stroke center is located! There is now a surgery available (mechanical thrombectomy) to treat large ischemic strokes. Mechanical thrombectomy is a minimally invasive, surgical clot retrieval that opens up the blocked artery and restores blood flow into the brain. The faster this surgery can be performed, the better the outcome (=less disability) from the ischemic stroke!
