IN Q=Many strokes
RUNS=:50
OUT Q=serious conditions.

(( Many strokes result when blood can't get to a portion of the brain because of a clogged arterty.
According to the new guidelines, TPA works best when given within three hours of the onset of stroke symptoms.
But before treatment is given, patients should be evaluated by a neurologist and have a C-T- scan to confirm the actual brain attack.
Patients who should not receive T-P-A include those with heart disease who take blood thinners, and patients whose brains already show damage from the strokes.
80-percent of strokes are of the type that might benefit from T-P-A.
You might love your family physicians, but according to a Harvard Medical School survey, primary care physicians get the cold shoulder from their more specialized peers.
Less than half felt that a generalist-- those in internal medicine pediatrics, or family practice, could provide care for serious conditions.))
