What does a TIA look like?

This is how ER physicians may make mistakes. She knew she was having a stroke. In fact, a mini stroke (TIA). People need to self-advocate.

Yepes was referred to the stroke unit of the Krembil Neuroscience Centre (KNC) at Toronto Western Hospital (TWH) – the stroke centre of care of the west region of Toronto.
Because Yepes' episodes had been short and had passed each time, she had most likely experienced a transient ischemic attack (TIA) or what's known as a "mini-stroke."
