"Time is Brain"

The American Heart Association's Stroke Council certainly knows how to turn a phrase. The Council notes that only 1/3 of actue stroke victims call for emergency medical services to transport them quickly for prompt care which can reverse the blockage to brain blood flow. As a result, they urge:

As emergency medical services offers the most prompt care, all patients with the acute onset of stroke symptoms should use services such as telephoning 911.
