    • Stroke is a serious and costly problem facing our nation. In the United States 800,000 people are having strokes every year, making this the 5th leading cause of death and the number one cause of disability. Thousands of these patients are suffering from long-term neurodeficits. Ranging from memory loss to paralysis, these men and women will have to make enormous changes to even the smallest of everyday activities. With so many people suffering from strokes each year we must ask ourselves, "are we identifying every stroke we encounter in the field?” This course seeks to help EMS responders to more effectively identify the signs of a stroke.

    • Following the onset of stroke it has been estimated that with every passing minute, prior to reperfusion therapy, a mind boggling 14 billion synapses and 1.9 million brain cells are lost. As EMS professionals we must strive to make quality emergency decisions. When it comes to a patient having a stroke your ability to quickly recognize, and respond with the appropriate treatment and transport decision, plays a critical role in determining the patient’s overall outcome. This lesson is designed to empower EMS professionals to make quality emergency transport decisions on behalf of stroke patients, by identifying the capabilities and limitations of various destination options.
