Stroke Prevention, Detection and Treatment

Stroke Prevention, Detection and Treatment

Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death in the United States and the #1 leading cause of adult disability. (Kochanek KD, 2014) (Mozzafarian D, 2015). Stroke occurs when blood flow is blocked to the brain either by a clot or ruptured vessel, which causes blood, nutrients and oxygen supply to the brain tissue to be interrupted, and results in cellular death. On average, one American dies of a stroke every four minutes (Mozzafarian D, 2015) and every 40 seconds someone has a stroke (American Heart Association, 2015). Onset of a stroke is an emergency and quick transport to a stroke hospital is key to treating stroke and preventing further deterioration in health.

Ouch! When Shingles Strikes …

The virus that causes chicken pox, varicella zoster, is never fully eradicated from our bodies. Instead, it lies dormant in nerve cells and can return at any time.
