The World Stroke Day 2021 Theme is ‘Minutes can save lives’ World Stroke Day on October 29th 2021 focuses on improving awareness of stroke symptoms that aims to highlight what can be saved if we all know the signs of stroke and call for an ambulance. When it comes to stroke, every minute matters. With the global lifetime risk of stroke standing at 1 in 4, it is clear that wide public awareness of symptoms is critical to the effort to save 5.5 million lives and improve outcomes for the 9 million people who survive stroke each year. Some stroke symptoms include: * Sudden numbness or weakness in the face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body. * Sudden confusion, trouble speaking, or difficulty understanding speech. * Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes. * Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance, or lack of coordination. * Sudden severe headache with no known cause.
