The American Stroke Association issued new guidelines for preventing stroke for women. The new guidelines take into account specific risk factors that are only prevalent in women. These new guidelines provide better tools for physicians to use when evaluating a women's potential for a stroke.
Jackie Hays interviews Lynn Hundley, MSN, RN, APRN, CCRN, CNRN, CCNS, about the new stroke guidelines and warns that worldwide one in six people will have a stroke in their lifetime.
