Q: What is a stroke?
A: Strokes are of two forms, Ischemic – a blockage in blood vessels running to the brain, and Hemorrhagic – bleeding in & around the brain. In an ischemic stroke, a blood clot blocks a blood vessel or artery in the brain. The majority (80%) of all strokes are Ischemic. Breaking of a blood vessel in the brain and bleeding into the brain is a Hemorrhagic stroke, about 20% of them are Hemorrhagic in nature.
Q: What happens during a stroke?
A: During a stroke, the blood supply is partly shut off to the brain. Brain cells die due to extreme lack of oxygen and nutrients from the blood or sudden bleeding into or around the brain is also considered a stroke.
Q: Symptoms of a stroke?
A: Sudden numbness or weakness, especially partially on one side to the body; confusion or trouble speaking or processing speech; visual impairment in one or both eyes; difficulty in walking, giddiness, or lower equilibrium or coordination physically; or unexplained and untimely headaches.
