Spot A Stroke FAST
WHY SHOULD I CALL 9-1-1 AT THE FIRST SIGN?
Time is of the essence! Nationally, only 5% of people having strokes receive treatment because they wait too long to seek it. Don’t wait. Call for help right away.
DOES THE EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT AT VAIL HEALTH TREAT STROKES?
Our board-certified Emergency Department physicians partner with neurologists to quickly evaluate and treat stroke.
SHOULD I BYPASS A SMALLER HOSPITAL TO DRIVE TO A BIG HOSPITAL?
If you or your loved one is experiencing symptoms, get to the hospital immediately. A physician evaluation and CT scan can determine eligibility for clot-busting drugs or other interventions.
