Wake Up To Stroke -- Night Strokes Linked To Long Delays In Care

e individuals, it is likely that the symptoms don't awaken them. This is understandable, because the symptoms of stroke are subtler than those of heart attacks. Stroke symptoms include sudden weakness and numbness in the face, arm or leg on one side of the body and sudden dimness or loss of vision or speech, particularly in one eye. Other symptoms include sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding, sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination, and sudden severe headache with no known cause.

"This study underscores the importance of seeking help when symptoms first start," he says. "We need to educate people to recognize the symptoms of stroke, to appropriately interpret the symptoms as a stroke and to call 911 immediately when they occur."

Co-authors are Dexter Morris, M.D., Ph.D., Kelly Evenson, Ph.D., Jeffrey Vallee and Kristie Schmidt, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and Suzanne Cook, Ph.D., GlaxoWellcome, Inc., North Carolina.

The research was presented at the American Heart Association 39th Annual Conference on Cardiovascular Disease Epidemiology and Prevention.
