Stroke Victims Don't Get Clot-Busting Drug

Of 25,5000 hospital patients who suffered a stroke due to a blood clot, only 26.6% received an injectable clot-busting drug that is recommended by the American Heart Association.

The study confirmed that the busiest stroke centers were fastest in giving this life-saving drug.

When witnessing a stroke, call 911 without delay since time lost is brain lost.
