STROKE

Over View

A stroke occurs once the blood supply to a part of your brain is interrupted or reduced, depriving brain tissue of oxygen and nutrients, within minutes brain cells begin to die.

A stroke is a medical emergency. Prompt treatment is crucial. Early action will minimize brain injury and potential complications.

Symptoms

The faster you can get a diagnosis and treatment for a stroke, the better your outcome will be. For this reason, it’s necessary to know and acknowledge the symptoms of a stroke.

Stroke symptoms include:

  • Difficulty walking
  • Dizziness
  • Loss of balance and coordination
  • Difficulty speaking or understanding others who are speaking
  • Numbness or paralysis in the face, leg, or arm, possibly on only one aspect of the body
  • Blurred or darkened vision
  • A sudden headache, particularly once in the midst of nausea, vomiting, or dizziness
Causes

A stroke is also caused by a blocked artery (ischemic stroke) or the leaking or bursting of a blood vessel (hemorrhagic stroke). Some people may experience only a temporary disruption of blood flow to the brain ( Transient Ischemic Attack ) that does not cause permanent injury.
