Public Health Matters Blog - Think it?s a stroke? 4 reasons it?s better to call 9-1-1 than drive yourself to the hospital
Stroke?also called a ?brain attack??can happen to anyone at any time. On average one American dies from stroke every 4 minutes. Most strokes happen when blood flow to the brain is blocked, causing brain cells to die. Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death in the United States and a major cause of long-term disability. Your best chance for surviving a stroke and having a full recovery is getting to the hospital quickly. But did you know that 1 in 3 stroke patients doesn?t call an ambulance? Instead, they may not recognize they?re having a stroke, try to wait to see if their symptoms go away, or may try to drive themselves or have another person drive them to the emergency room. All of these things actually increases your risk for disability and death.
