- The problem
A stroke is a serious life-threatening condition that can cause severe disability and brain damage to sufferers and occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off.
The most common type of strokes are Ischaemic strokes. They are caused by blood clots causing a blockage; these blood clots tend to form in areas where the arteries have been narrowed or blocked over time by fatty deposits known as plaques.
Strokes are a medical emergency and urgent treatment is essential. The sooner somebody is able to receive treatment after having a stroke the better their chances of recovery.
Better still, we should do all we can, whilst we are able, to lower our chances of having one at all.
