  • Neurocritical care (care that deals with neurosurgical and neurological medical problems in critically ill patients)
  • The latest in imaging for rapid and accurate diagnosis

Time is critical to the outcome of the stroke so it’s important to know a stroke is happening. To recognize signs of a stroke, use this four-step approach with the easy-to-remember name: F.A.S.T.
 
Face – Try to smile. Does one side droop?
Arm – Hold up both arms. Does one arm drift down?
Speech – Try repeating a simple phrase. Unable to or slurred?
Time – Call 9-1-1 if having even one of these signs of stroke. Time is critical.

If you act F.A.S.T., it can make a big difference.

Fairview's stroke care team uses the most current technologies to treat stroke symptoms such as:
    • Sudden one-sided weakness, numbness or paralysis
    • Blurred or decreased vision in one or both eyes
    • Difficulty speaking or understanding others
    • Dizziness or loss of balance
    • Severe or unexplained headache
