Speaker Series: Understanding Stroke and Stroke Care
Stroke and Stroke Care - Presented by: Tracy Love, MSN RN CNL
Stroke is a stop in the flow of blood to the brain either by blockage (clot) or by hemorrhage (bleeding) in the brain. It is the fifth leading cause of death in our country; someone has a stroke every 40 seconds, and someone dies of stroke every 4 minutes.
Stroke is also a leading cause of serious long-term disability, reducing mobility in more than half of stroke survivors over age 65. Do you know how to recognize a stroke or what to do if one is happening to you or someone you love? Learn the signs and symptoms of stroke, how you can help prevent one, and the treatment options available in a discussion with FHN Stroke Program Coordinator Tracy Love, MSN RN CNL.
Tracy will also describe the state-of-the-art diagnosis equipment used in FHN's emergency department.
