What is Stroke?

Stroke is a disease that affects the arteries leading to and within the brain.
It is the No. 2 cause of death and a leading cause of disability in the United States.
A stroke occurs when a blood vessel that carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain is either blocked by a clot or bursts (or ruptures). When that happens, part of the brain cannot get the blood (and oxygen) it needs, so it and brain cells die.

What are the types of Stroke?

Stroke can be caused by a clot obstructing the flow of blood to the brain (called an ischemic stroke). This can be caused by plaque buildup in arteries as a result of high LDL cholesterol.
Another type of stroke is where a blood vessel ruptures preventing blood flow to the brain (called a hemorrhagic stroke). This is generally caused by high blood pressure.
ATIA (transient ischemic attack), or “mini stroke”, is caused by a temporary clot.

The Warning Signs of a Stroke

SPEECH DIFFICULTY – Speech is slurred, they are unable to speak, or are hard to understand.
ARM WEAKNESS – One arm may be weak or numb.
FACE DROOPING – One side of the face may droop or is numb.

WHAT MUST YOU DO NEXT

CALL 9-1-1 immediately if the person shows any of these symptoms, even if the symptoms go away, call 9-1-1 and get them to the emergency room immediately. This is a critical source of action. The brain starts to die within 4 to 5 minutes.
