About 795,000 people experience a new or recurrent stroke each year. The direct and indirect cost of stroke in the U.S. is estimated at $33 billion. This estimate includes acute care, acute rehabilitation, and follow-up care needed to manage ongoing neurological deficits.

Many words and would like to see this put into a powerpoint presentation. The questions are about types of strokes and relation to the anatomy of the brain. It would be more useful to include questions on the type of stoke based on physical signs and symptoms. Possibly include a case study type of question. This would better prepare individuals for management of a stroke when they aren't actually giving medications, etc.
