P854 Acute Coronary Syndrome

A transient ischemic attack (TIA), or “mini-stroke”,
can cause many of the same symptoms as a stroke, but TIA symptoms are brief and last from a few minutes up to 24 hours. Call for medical help immediately if you suspect a person is having a TIA, as it may be a warning sign that a stroke is about to occur. Not all strokes, however, are preceded by TIAs. Warning signs of stroke Anyone having a stroke should seek medical attention immediately. These are warning signs: • Sudden weakness or numbness of the face, arm, or leg on one side of the body • Sudden dimness or loss of vision, particularly in only one eye • Loss of speech or trouble talking or understanding speech • Sudden, severe headaches with no known cause • Unexplained dizziness, unsteadiness or sudden falls, especially combined with any other symptom 10
