Stroke is definitely a medical emergency

June 26, 2016

Stroke is a "Brain attack". It occurs when the blood supply to part of your brain is interrupted or severely reduced, depriving brain tissue of oxygen and nutrients. Within minutes, brain cells begin to die. When brain cells die during a stroke, abilities controlled by that area of the brain such as memory or muscle are lost.


A stroke can happen to anyone at any time. Therefore it is a medical emergency. Prompt treatment is crucial. Early action can minimize brain damage and potential complications. The good news is that strokes can be treated and prevented, and many fewer people die of stroke now than even 15 years ago.


Each year nearly 800,000 people worldwide experience a new or recurrent stroke.
