Every second can mean the difference between life and death when someone is experiencing a stroke.
Promedica is working to get care to stroke patients faster through new, time-saving technology.
Regardless of where the health emergency occurs, a stroke specialist can access patients' data and properly diagnose them.
Health experts say common stroke symptoms to watch for include tingling or numbness of the face, which can cause a crooked smile or drooping of the eye; weakness, numbness, or tingling in an arm; and slurred or garbled speech.
