A stroke occurs when blood supply to part of the brain is interrupted or reduced, preventing brain tissue from getting the oxygen and nutrients it needs. This disruption can be caused by either a blockage (ischemic stroke) or bleeding (hemorrhagic stroke). An ischemic stroke happens when a blood clot obstructs a blood vessel in the brain, leading to rapid cell death due to lack of oxygen. A hemorrhagic stroke occurs when a blood vessel in the brain bursts, causing bleeding and increased pressure that damages surrounding brain cells. The severity and effects of a stroke depend on the location and extent of brain damage, with symptoms and potential recovery varying widely among individuals. Early intervention is critical to improve outcomes and reduce long-term disabilities.

Signs & Symptoms

Signs and symptoms of a stroke can vary widely but often come on suddenly. These may include:

  • Trouble speaking and understanding what others are saying
  • Numbness, weakness or paralysis in the face, arm or leg
  • Problems seeing in one or both eyes
  • Headache
  • Trouble walking
  • Dizziness

It is crucial to recognize these symptoms quickly, as prompt medical intervention can significantly improve outcomes and reduce the risk of long-term disability. If you suspect someone is having a stroke, seek emergency medical help immediately.
