Why Every Second Counts

Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the U.S. and the leading cause of serious, long-term disability. Each year, more than 700,000 Americans suffer a stroke. Someone has a stroke every 40 seconds.

  • When you are having a stroke, a blockage or hemorrhage cuts off oxygen to part of the brain
  • Every second that goes by costs thousands of brain cells, which may or may not be recovered
  • Survival and degree of recovery depend on how quickly a precise diagnosis can be made and treatment can begin
