After decades of decline, progress has slowed in preventing stroke deaths. Almost 800,000 people have a stroke each year, more than 140,000 die and many survivors face disability. This is disturbing because about 80% of strokes are preventable. Health systems (hospitals, doctors, rehabilitation specialists, emergency medical technicians [EMTs], pharmacists) can help address stroke risk factors and improve patient outcomes if a stroke occurs.

Key points:

* Every *40* seconds someone has a stroke in the US. * Stroke death declines have stalled in *3 out of every 4* states. * *80%* of strokes are preventable.
