LINCOLN, Neb., Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- About 795,000 Americans suffer a stroke every year.  Healthcare professionals trained in stroke recognition and care save many of their lives.  Health Education Solutions, the leading provider of continuing education solutions for healthcare professionals, today released a new Stroke Special Section , a series of articles, vignettes and important facts about the American Heart Association's stroke certification courses, available in its online research library.  The 10-article special section is free for healthcare providers, first responders and individuals who simply want to be prepared to provide emergency care.

"Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States.  Now more than ever, it's vital for healthcare professionals to have the knowledge, training, and resources to recognize a stroke and understand the steps to take to maximize survival," said David King, president of Health Education Solutions.  "Whether you're seeking to update your professional skills or just want to be prepared for a medical emergency, Health Education Solutions' research library and online courses make vital information easily accessible."

Other courses offered through the American Heart Association Enterprise Program include Heartsaver® First Aid Online Part 1, Heartsaver® CPR and AED Online Part 1, Heartsaver® First Aid Online with CPR & AED Part 1 and Heartsaver® Bloodborne Pathogens online courses.
