Stroke care

Stroke is the fifth greatest cause of death and a leading cause of disability in the U.S. When someone experiences a stroke, they experience a medical emergency. Each second counts to save brain tissue—and life.

Stroke victims require critical treatment from the moment symptoms begin for a better chance of recovery without permanent disabilities. Timely treatment is more likely to prevent death from stroke, in some cases, fast treatment can even reverse the stroke.

From stroke treatment to rehabilitation, Memorial Satilla Health maintains specialized resources, including experienced neurologists and neuro-radiologists, for the state-of-the-art care of stroke patients.

Stroke symptoms

Recognizing the warning signs of stroke can help save a life. To help you recognize stroke symptoms, remember the F.A.S.T. check:

  • Face: Does one side of the face droop when the person smiles?
  • Arms: Does one arm drop down when both arms are raised?
  • Speech: Is speech slurred or confusing when you ask the person to repeat a sentence?
  • Time: If the answer to any of these is yes, call 911 right away, and tell the dispatcher you think someone is having a stroke.
