At the beginning of this short article you need to know that stroke occurs often that you know and sadly is one of the leading causes of death all around the world. It is the fourth major reason of deaths in the US.
Stroke is a brain attack that is triggered by interrupted circulation of blood in the brain. During the stroke, the patient can lose about 2 million neurons (nerve cells) per minute.
Sufferers deal with either ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke. Ischemic strokes are caused by constricted or blocked canals to the brain, which do not carry blood properly.
The second type is less common, and it is caused by brain aneurysm burst or blood vessel leak.
Recognizing the initial symptoms and signs is the best prevention. Once you notice anything strange that worries you, consult your doctor immediately.
