The Bay - National Stroke Awareness Month

May – National Stroke Awareness Month


Did you know that up to eighty percent of strokes are preventable, yet it is expected that nearly 795,000 people in the  U.S. will have a stroke this year?

Mirian Medina, R.N., Stroke Coordinator at RBMC, says that stroke can strike without warning. “There often aren’t  any symptoms. The only way to beat the ‘silent killer’ is to know when your blood pressure is elevated and take steps  to control your hypertension. One in three adults is hypertensive; many don’t know it. The only way to know if you are hypertensive is to have your blood pressure checked by a medical professional.

Medication and lifestyle changes, such as exercising, dieting, quitting smoking and limiting salt intake, can be effective,  especially for people in the pre-hypertensive range.

Specially trained staff at Raritan Bay Medical Center in Perth Amboy, a NJ-designated Primary Stroke Center, can  quickly implement life-saving protocols to control the effects of a stroke in patients arriving at the ED. For patients,  this means rapid triage, diagnostic evaluation and treatment by a team of specialists who respond within minutes to a  “Stroke Team Activation” alert, and who work together to provide seamless care for patients who may be having a  stroke.
