Aventura Hospital & Medical Center – Stroke Treatments

– Strokes are treated in various ways. We now have treatments
that are FDA approved within three hours and American
Heart Association approved within four-and-a-half
hours to treat acute stroke with medication that
breaks up a blood clot. This must be done quickly
and therefore the patients must come to the hospital
as soon as possible. The emergency room and the
emergency medical services are very adept at identifying
these early signs. Therefore we can make a big
difference in someone’s life. If a stroke has already
happened we base our treatment on prevention and finding
out what caused the stroke to minimize any further
strokes in the future or progression of the
stroke they have now.
