About Stroke Care

A stroke, also known as a “brain attack” occurs when blood flow in the brain is interrupted, either by a clot or when blood leaks into the brain from a ruptured vessel.

The result? Loss of brain cells – 1.9 million neurons are lost each minute of a stroke. When this occurs, people lose the ability to function as they did minutes prior to the stroke. Sudden loss of speech, sudden weakness or numbness of the face, arm or leg and a sudden severe headache are common signs you are having a stroke.

What do you do if you or someone you know displays these symptoms? Call 9-1-1 immediately! Do not go to bed or carry on your day thinking you will start feeling better.

Stroke is an emergency! One minute you are fine, and the next you are impaired. While every stroke is treated individually, getting to a hospital quickly will likely increase the chances of a positive outcome.

What is a Comprehensive Stroke Center?

University of Louisville Hospital was Kentucky’s first certified comprehensive stroke center. Dr. Kerri Remmel, Director of University Hospital’s Stroke Center, talks about the significance of that accreditation.
