What is Stroke?

In a simple term, stroke can be referred to as a “brain attack”. Just like heart attack, stroke requires the same urgency to reverse cerebral ischemia (lack of oxygen to the brain). Stroke occurs when there is a blockage in the passage of blood to the brain (Ischemic)or when a blood vessel in the brain ruptured (Hemorrhagic). These can cause permanent damage to the part of the brain resulting in long term disability or even death.
