Our next guest today is Sheryl Martin-Schild, M.D., Ph.D., LERN Stroke Medical Director and Medical Director of Neurology & Stroke for the New Orleans East Hospital and Touro Infirmary she will be discussing the newest survey about :Would You Call 911 If You Witnessed a Stroke? This National survey says: only 40% of U.S. adults who have witnessed a stroke called 911 as their first reaction.  As the COVID-19 pandemic developed early this year, a concerning pattern emerged. Data from 5 major healthcare systems show that as COVID-19 caseloads spiked, emergency department visits decreased by more than 40%. Now, as we continue to experience a resurgence of the virus in parts of the country, we’re starting to see this trend resume.

But even during a pandemic, medical emergencies, such as stroke and heart attack, can be life-threatening and demand immediate attention. While the idea of witnessing a stroke can be scary, healthcare providers, including Dr. Sheryl Martin-Schild, are urging people to call 911 and seek immediate medical attention for emergencies, like stroke, and want you to know that they are working tirelessly to provide the best care possible for all of their patients.
