"Every year, nearly 800,000 people in the United States have a stroke," says Stephen Martino, M.D., stroke medical director for Meridian Neuroscience. "It is the fifth leading cause of death and the leading cause of long-term disability. Knowing the signs and symptoms, and getting effective treatment delivered within the first three hours, is imperative to limiting the damaging effects of stroke."
