ParamedicWhen a stroke occurs it’s a race against time because many neurons in the brain are destroyed each minute treatment is delayed. To save time, call 911 immediately if you or someone with you experiences the signs of stroke. The paramedics will quickly get you to the best hospital for stroke care. Do not drive yourself or the person having the stroke to the hospital.

The above videos were tailored for the current Regional and District Stroke Centres in the South West Local Health Integration Network area* to reinforce these important messages.

 

* The South West Local Health Integration Network serves Grey, Bruce, Huron, Perth, Middlesex, Oxford, Elgin, and Norfolk (west).
