Uh, that's not entirely true... There are different severity levels of strokes (based on the level of bleeding and how long it has gone untreated) and heart attacks, but my point was that anyone who has a stroke has had a significant event happen to them.
People who have Myocardial Infarctions do have "minor" heart attacks in many cases...
Lots of geriatric pts have had minor MIs and didnt even realize it or call EMS, especially women because they present differently
