Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for May 3, 2012-Stroke Awareness (Vol.5, Iss.1)

May is Stroke Awareness Month

Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States. It is also a leading cause of serious long-term disability. Although most strokes occur in people aged 65 years or older, strokes can occur at any age. For example, a new CDC study, Trends of Acute Ischemic Stroke Hospitalizations in the U.S.: 1994–2007, found that stroke hospitalizations increased among both males and females aged 5–44 years old, raising concern about this young population.

New treatments are available that can reduce the damage caused by a stroke for some victims, but these treatments need to be given soon after the symptoms start. http://www.cdc.gov/Features/Stroke/

Strokes call for the those around a person experiencing signs and symptoms to need fast actions to get them proper care. Getting care could mean the difference of  life threatening affects.  When a stroke strikes it does not take a poll or have any respect of persons. Know the signs and be ready and willing to act in the nick of time.

This month I will highlight and bring awareness to National Stroke Awareness
