When Minutes Count, McLeod Dillon Uses the Latest in Technology to Act Quickly

When it comes to stroke, know the warning signs!

If you know the symptoms of stroke, you might save a life. They are:

  • Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arms or legs, especially on one side of the body
  • Sudden confusion or trouble speaking or understanding speech
  • Sudden trouble seeing out of one or both eyes
  • Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, or loss of balance or coordination
  • Severe headaches with no known cause

McLeod Dillon is a partner in the REACH Stroke Network. This is a tremendous benefit to our community. You see, when it comes to stroke, time lost is brain lost. The longer it takes a stroke patient to receive care, the greater the chances of permanent disability or even death. Learn more about the REACH Stroke Network.
