Summary

Stroke


The CDC states that someone in the United States has a stroke every 40 seconds, and someone dies of a stroke every 4 minutes. It will touch your reader's lives. This book provides essential information on strokes. This book also serves as a historical survey, by providing information on the controversies surrounding its causes. Compelling first-person narratives by people coping with strokes give readers a first-hand experience. Readers will learn from the words of patients, family members, or caregivers. The symptoms, causes, treatments, and potential cures are explained in detail. Alternative treatments are also covered. Each essay is carefully edited and presented with an introduction, so that they are accessible for student researchers and readers. First-hand accounts include a young mother who suffered a stroke, a man who survived a stroke at age 10, and a brain scientist who suffered and learned from a stroke.
