TIA (Transient Ischemic Attack)
Some call it a mini-stroke, but it's really a major warning. Call 9-1-1.
What is a TIA?
A Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) is often called a mini-stroke, but it’s really a major warning.
TIA is a temporary blockage of blood flow to the brain. Since it doesn’t cause permanent damage, it’s often ignored. But this is a big mistake. TIAs may signal a full-blown stroke ahead.
Use the letters in "F.A.S.T." to spot signs of a stroke and know when to call 9-1-1.
By learning and sharing the F.A.S.T. warning signs, you just might save a life from stroke.
