Stroke Care

 

 

Stroke is one of the leading causes of death and serious, long-term disability in the U.S, according to the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association. On average:

  • Someone suffers a stroke every 40 seconds 
  • Someone dies of a stroke every four minutes 
  • 795,000 people suffer a new or recurrent stroke each year 

Our Stroke Program

If you or someone you love suffers a stroke, our trained stroke team provides prompt diagnosis and stroke treatment. Experienced neurologists and other clinical experts lead the team.

  • We offer a coordinated response and specialized care 24 hours a day.

  • Our cutting–edge telemedicine robot, nicknamed Rosie, connects with a remote neurologist within minutes to help the ED doctor identify and treat our stroke patients. With a stroke, “time is brain” and the sooner the stroke treatment begins, the better the outcomes for our patients.

  • In 2015 Sequoia received the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get with the Guidelines - Stroke Gold Plus award.

  • In 2016 Sequoia was re-certified as an Advanced Primary Stroke Center by The Joint Commission. This certification recognizes centers that follow the best practices for stroke care.

Stroke Signs and Symptoms

When you or someone you loves suffers a stroke, recognizing the first warning signs and getting expert medical help quickly is critical to maximizing your chances of survival and rehabilitation. Response time can make the difference between recovering from a stroke and having to endure longterm disabilities.

Remember these signs of a stroke: ACT F-A-S-T

Face – Does one side of the face droop? Ask person to smile.

Arm – Does one arm drift downward? Ask person to raise both arms.

Speech – Are words slurred? Ask person to repeat a phrase

Time – If they show any symptoms, call 9-1-1 immediately.
