Episode Details

Time Lost is Brain Lost...when it comes to a stroke...that's an important concept. As soon as a stroke occurs the clock starts ticking and the sooner the person having a stroke can get medical attention the better the chance for a good outcome. In this program we take a look at the various ways to intervene and limit the damage from a stroke...including clot busting medications, and mechanical and surgical interventions.
