The best way to learn symptoms of a stroke is to remember FAST. If you see sudden:
The MSU will respond as a part of the 911 Emergency Response System. When a patient within the MSU’s response area calls 911 about a stroke (or stroke-like symptoms), the MSU will be immediately dispatched to the scene.
Currently, the MSU will respond to 911 stroke calls within the Santa Monica area. However, we are working to expand the program into additional cities including Westwood, San Pedro, and Long Beach.
By delivering proven stroke therapies to patients faster than ever before, we anticipate this will improve immediate patient outcomes and reduce patient long-term disability, allowing patients to lead fuller, healthier lives.
