Stroke

Occurs when a supply of blood to your brain blocked (stop). This rapture blockage denies blood and oxygen from reaching the brain tissues.

Stroke is the fifth- leading cause of death in united States. Every year, more than 795,000 people have Stroke. We all aware oxygen plays a big role in our brain cells and tissues. Without oxygen, brain cells become weak and dies fast.

Stroke is further divided into three categories; lschemic and Hemorrhagic stroke.

The sooner you get treatment, the better your outcome is likely to be. For this matter, is important for you to know the signs so that you can act quickly to safe yourself or someone else life. It is better to be safe than sorry when dealing with Stroke. NOTE; women have higher lifetime risk of having Stroke than men. The type of stroke you have affects your treatment and recovery process.

Now let me briefly explain these categories of stroke as someone may demand.

Ischemic Stroke; During an ischaemic stroke, the arteries supplying blood to the brain become blocked or narrow. These blockages are caused by blood clots or blood flow that is heavily reduced. Hemorrhagic stroke; Now with this kind of stroke, an artery in the brain break open or leaks blood. The blood from that artery creates heavy pressure on the skull and swells the brain and causes damages to brain cells and tissues. When you started seeing these signs B.E F.A.S.T
