Every minute matters
A stroke is sudden brain damage due to a lack of blood flow to the brain caused by a clot or rupture of a blood vessel. The faster a stroke gets treated- the less brain damage a person will suffer. Know the warning signs of stroke and think FAST. Trident Medical Center strives to exceed national benchmarks for getting stroke victims into treatment. Certified stroke care professionals – emergency department specialists, neurologists, hospitalists, nurses, therapists, pharmacists and technicians – work together to address every need the stroke patient may have.
