Time Is Brain
While in any medical emergency Time is of essence,in a Stroke Time lost is ( literally ) Brain lost !
The more time one loses, the more brain dies. As the figure shows, about 32,000 neurons and 230 million synapses are lost every second.
Dead brain cells are NOT replaced – and one stroke left untreated is a broad equivalent to an aging of THIRTY SIX Years ( if it is not fatal ! )
Hence, as is concluded in the Study referred to :
” Quantitative estimates of the pace of neural circuitry loss in human ischemic stroke emphasize the time urgency of stroke care. The typical patient loses 1.9 million neurons each minute in which stroke is untreated. “.

This of course is no predictor of what exactly will be the impact of the Stroke. NO stroke is like any other and the consequences and disabilities – temporary or lifelong – will depend upon what are the areas of brain impacted and how much.
Hence it is critical that a stroke occurrence is recognized early, and immediate appropriate actions taken. Help raise stroke awareness- please share/circulate, thank you!
Help us raise Stroke Awareness and fight this terrible malaise . Join us via any of hereunder for awareness, mutual support, encouragement and most of all, hope !
Join other Stroke Survivors, Caregivers and equipment/service providers for encouragement , knowledge sharing and most importantly – hope – via:
