A stroke is the result of a circulatory disorder in the brain. Symptoms can range from paralysis, sensory disturbances, swallowing and speech disorders, and impairment of cognitive abilities. A stroke is always an emergency and has to be treated immediately. This finding is based on the experience that all improvement measures within the first 3 hours (preferably in the first hour) have the best effect. Following acute treatment, lost skills can be partially or fully recovered in a specialized rehabilitation facility.

 

Stroke is the fifth-leading cause of death in Kentucky. Getting treatment as soon as a stroke occurs can make a huge difference in survival and recovery.

“Time is Brain!” is a direct way of conveying that stroke is a top medical emergency. It simply means that the more time passes before a stroke patient receives a definitive treatment, the worst the repercussions will be. But it also means that if the stroke is treated immediately, the brain damage will be minimized.
