Time is brain - mantra to remember

Yes, time is brain. A recent public radio report on efforts to combat North Carolina's high stroke rate included a response about what to do while a stroke is occurring. The quote is from the program director with the North Carolina Stroke Association, Margaret Rudisill:
"Time is brain, that’s our mantra. If they sit and wait until tomorrow to see if they’re going to get better, it’s too late. We just had one this week that got here in the time frame, they were totally paralyzed on one side and couldn’t speak, we gave them the medicine and that person is walking out of the hospital today two days later after experiencing that huge stroke.”
Well said. Review the stroke signs, and if you see even one, get help fast!
