How To Prevent A Stroke
The most appropriate way to prevent a stroke is to arm the public with the knowledge of prevention care and encourage people to follow up with their primary care physician for yearly check ups. The physician can do a thorough history and it is important to know if any family members have had strokes in the past and if any immediate family members have high cholesterol or a heart condition called Atrial Fibrillation. If you are a medical professional and have a had an ACLS course in the past, then consider an ACLS renewal class. The certification is valid for 2 years.
