Hubbies React to Stroke Symptoms Before Wives

By

After noticing stroke symptoms, married men called for emergency attention more quickly than married women, researchers found. Among patients brought to the hospital by ambulance, married men activated the 911 system within an average of 28 minutes, whereas it took married women more than an hour (67 minutes), a significant difference (P=0.005), according to Joyce Lee-Iannotti, MD, a neurology fellow at the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Ariz.
