Stroke Prevention

Managing care during a stroke

Time is a key factor in challenging avoidable deaths from stroke. Most people suffering a stroke will experience far better outcomes if they receive treatment at hospital within three hours of symptoms.

The first hurdle when suffering a stroke is to get it recognised quickly. F.A.S.T provides quick and easy symptom checks to get yourself or others the help needed. Upon arriving at hospital stroke suffers will be quickly assessed
and assigned a course of treatment designed to be the most effective against the type of stroke suffered. The quicker this happens the better in terms of positive outcomes. It’s important to remember that strokes can happen to adults who are not elderly
