I would like to address I77Medic 's post of "The therapies for stroke that Dr. Fesmire mentions in his letter are rarely used. They have great risk and little success. " --

I seriously doubt you are a neurologist. As a neurologist myself, I have treated countless strokes and can attest to the success of this treatment. All medical treatments undergo rigorous testing before approval by the FDA and certainly would not be approved unless they were significantly clinically effective, and if the benefit outweighs the risks. I have observed stroke symptoms literally dissolve in front of your eyes as treatment is given.

I am not going to comment on whether or not what these people did was appropriate. Rather, I would appreciate you not making false medical claims as you are likely to cause harm to others by giving them a false impression of stroke treatment should they need treatment.
