One of the goals of Atlantic Health System Neuroscience is educating people about the warning signs of stroke. They include sudden:

  • Numbness or weakness of the face, arm, or leg, especially one side of the body
  • Confusion or trouble speaking or understanding
  • Trouble seeing in one or both eyes
  • Dizziness, loss of balance or coordination, trouble walking
  • Severe headache with no known cause

If You Think You are Having a Stroke:

  • Call 911 immediately
  • Ask to be taken to a hospital that has a designated stroke center, like Chilton Medical Center, Hackettstown Medical Center, Morristown Medical Center, Newton Medical Center or Overlook Medical Center
  • Note the time that symptoms start – you may be a candidate for thrombolytic therapy, where medications are used to dissolve the blood clot causing the stroke. This treatment must be administered within four and a half hours after stroke symptoms begin.
