A stroke or a brain illness occurs when a blood clot blocks a blood vessel or when a blood vessel bursts, preventing blood flow to an area of the brain.
An ischemic stroke happens when the blood vessel is prevented and it is the most prevalent type of stroke. A hemorrhagic stroke generally occurs when a blood vessel breaks. This type of stroke is less common.
During a stroke the blood flow is disrupted and the brain needs oxygen to survive. Due to lack of oxygen the cells in the part of the brain that were receiving oxygenated blood can now die. These cells normally die within minutes to a few hours after the stroke starts. When cells die, chemicals are released which further cause more cells to die. This is why there is a small window of possibility for the treatment of ischemic stroke.
80% of strokes can be restricted by discussing modifiable risk factors. When an individual has a stroke, their risk of having another stroke is enhanced. When a person is treated for a stroke, vaccinations and suggestions are given to limit further strokes.
