Every 40 seconds, someone in the United States has a stroke; the stroke results in a death every 3.3 minutes. Globally, stroke is the second leading cause of death and the leading cause of disability. Emergency treatments to limit the risk of disability are available but must be administered within a brief window of time. Thus, it is vital that emergency medical services (EMS) personnel recognize, stabilize, and transport a stroke patient with a new sense of urgency and medical centers handle these patients on an emergency basis that includes developing acute stroke teams and forming networks with other medical centers to enable rapid evaluation and treatment 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
