Stroke Facts

What Is A Stroke?

According to the American Stroke Association, a stroke occurs when a blood vessel that carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain is either blocked by a clot (called an ischemic stroke) or bursts (called a hemorrhagic stroke).  When that happens, part of the brain cannot get the blood (and oxygen) it needs, so it starts to die.
