  • What is a Stroke?

    A stroke is caused by sudden loss of blood supply to a part of the brain (ischemia). In some cases, stroke is caused by bleeding into brain tissue (hemorrhage). Stroke can cause significant change in a person’s ability to live a normal life. It can lead to paralysis, loss of speech, memory difficulties, vision problems, diminished reasoning and sometimes even death.

    Stroke affects 750,000 Americans each year, including 150,000 deaths. It is the leading cause of adult disability.

  • What are the Symptoms of a Stroke?
    • Sudden weakness/numbness of the face, arm, or leg, usually on one side of the body
    • Sudden dimness or loss of vision, particularly in one eye
    • Loss of speech, or trouble talking or understanding speech
    • Sudden severe headache
    • Sudden episodes of unexplained dizziness or unsteadiness

    When a stroke takes place, there is a brief window of opportunity in which to save injured brain and reduce disability. To minimize disability, it is critical that stroke victims are evaluated and treated quickly. It is critical that you call 9-1-1 immediately if you or anyone you know is experiencing stroke symptoms.
