What is a stroke? 

A stroke is an interruption in blood flow to the brain. The block can be caused by a block or breaking of an artery supplying blood to the brain tissue.

• Without blood supply, brain tissue begins to die within minutes.

• Signs and symptoms of a stroke depend on what part of the brain is affected.


Warning signs of a stroke (warning signs are sudden):

  • Uneven smile
  • Weakness or numbness on one side of body
  • Confused or slurred speech
  • Vision loss
  • Trouble walking
  • Sudden, severe headache

What should you do if someone is having a stroke?

If you believe someone is having a stroke- if he or she suddenly loses the ability to speak, or move an arm or leg on one side, or experiences facial paralysis on one side- call 911 immediately.
