What’s The Difference Between A TIA(Transient Ischemic Attack) and A Stroke?

In this RoyOnRescue videoblog I answer a request to expound on TIA’s or Transient Ischemic Attacks.  I found a great definition at this link.

This “mini stroke” can last from a couple of minutes to around a half hour and looks and acts like a full blown stroke.  Take a look at this RoyOnRescue post to learn the difference and what you should do if you come across someone who shows these signs and symptoms.

 

Best Wishes,

  1. Concerned that you are driving in your clips…road safety so critical…my husband has been OTR Truck Driver 33yrs and many, many accidents preventable…some just inattention to other vehicles on the road. Love all your clips…love PROCPR…would hate for you to be involved in auto accident while filming…then who would keep us out of the classroom?? Be safe Roy!
