Health Matters: Dr. Tanzila Kulman, neurologist and Jennifer Brackmann, associate vice president of neurosciences at Aultman Hospital
World Stroke Day, which was recognized last week, brought much needed attention to stroke risk factors and care. Much like heart disease, strokes can happen unexpectedly, but knowing the risk factors can often prevent strokes and aid in treatment. Some of these risk factors can include high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, smoking, age and gender, race and ethnicity and more. Stroke treatment is relatively new in the medical world, and this program we dive into the topic of neurology treatment with the experts from Aultman Hospital and find out what proactive steps can be taken if a patient suspects a stroke.
