Lifestyle and Medical Risk Factors for a Stroke

Green Clock Hours: 1.25

In the U.S., cerebrovascular accidents (CVAs), or strokes, are the fifth leading cause of death and occurs about once every 40 seconds (American Stroke Association, n.d.; Centers for Disease Control [CDC], 2021b). Additionally, stroke is a leading causative factor in patient long-term disability, leaving more than half of all stroke survivors living with reduced mobility. There is a limited timeframe in which a patient can be treated for a stroke to minimize long-term effects. While strokes can be fatal, symptoms of stroke can be abetted if the patient is treated early enough. Educating patients on stroke prevention is vital for those who are at risk to avoid a medical emergency. In addition, it is important for healthcare providers (HCPs) to understand the etiological risk factors for stroke, as well as management techniques for patients who have already suffered a stroke.
