Really good blog
Hi there. I just returned from a stroke recognition/prevention class and I was amazed at how much I didn’t know about this horrible, delve stating occurance. First, what is a stroke?
A stroke occurs when the blood supply to part of your brain is interrupted or severely reduced, depriving brain tissue of oxygen and nutrients. Within minutes, brain cells begin to die. A stroke is a medical emergency.
2. Strokes kill almost 130,000 Americans each year—that’s 1 out of every 20 deaths.
3.On average, one American dies from stroke every 4 minutes.
4. Every year, more than 795,000 people in the United States have a stroke.
5. About 610,000 of these are first or new strokes.
