On average, someone suffers from a stroke every 40 seconds and someone dies from a stroke every 4 minutes. In all, 795,000 people suffer a new or recurrent stroke each year. The statistics are staggering, and make it clear why quick diagnosis and treatment is so important if you think you may be having a stroke. At MountainView Regional Medical Center, we know that a stroke can happen at any time. We’re ready all the time — 24 hours a day to provide vital, immediate attention.

She is a true asset to Around the Clock.

Intravenous injection of tissue plasminogen activator (tPA). This injection of recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (tPA), also called alteplase, is considered the gold standard treatment for ischemic stroke. An injection of tPA is usually given through a vein in the arm. This potent clot-busting drug ideally is given within three hours. In some instances, tPA can be given up to 4.5 hours after stroke symptoms begin.

All hospitals in the study participated in the GWTG program, and thus "it cannot be discerned whether GWTG-Stroke participation is necessary to meet high level process adherence," the authors noted. Residual measured and unmeasured confounding may have influenced the multivariable analyses, and it wasn't possible to ascertain whether length of time as a PSC-certified center affected care.
"I have treated patients residing at Best Personal Care for over a decade. I have been impressed by their dedication and commitment to the welfare of their residents.

They give them a frame of reference that can help them succeed, given their handicaps. All in all, its been an excellent placement choice."
Surgical AVM removal. Surgeons may remove a smaller AVM if it's located in an accessible area of your brain, to eliminate the risk of rupture and lower the risk of hemorrhagic stroke. However, it's not always possible to remove an AVM if its removal would cause too large a reduction in brain function, or if it's large or located deep within your brain.

One relatively new service in the United States that can help keep older people in their homes longer is respite care.[18] This type of care allows caregivers the opportunity to go on vacation or a business trip and know that their family member has good quality temporary care, for without this help the elder might have to move permanently to an outside facility. Another unique type of care cropping in U.S. hospitals is called acute care of elder units, or ACE units, which provide "a homelike setting" within a medical center specifically for older adults.[19]

India's cultural view of elderly care is similar to that of Nepal's. Parents are typically cared for by their children into old age, most commonly by their sons.[33] In these countries, elderly citizens, especially men, are viewed in very high regard. Traditional values demand honor and respect for older, wiser people.[34] India is facing the same problem as many developing nations in that its elderly population is increasing tremendously, with a current estimate of 90 million over the age of 60.[35] Using data on health and living conditions from the India's 60th National Sample Survey, a study found that almost a quarter of the elderly reported poor health. Reports of poor health were clustered among the poor, single, lower-educated and economically inactive groups.[36]

Personal assistants can change your life, but they can be pricey. If you’re working for yourself or for a small company, or if you’re just feeling overwhelmed in your everyday life, hiring a personal assistant might sound like a pipe dream. But for a quick fix, many effective personal assistant apps can be downloaded completely free of cost on your mobile device. Some mobile devices even come standard equipped with virtual assistants, such as Apple’s Siri, Cortana, or Google Assistant—one study found that 42 percent of smart phone users, or 71 million people, used an artificial-intelligence-based personal assistant app.
