Stroke, also known as a “brain attack,” is a leading cause of death and disability in the United States. Every 40 seconds someone has a stroke. If you see any sign of stroke, consider it an emergency.

How a stroke occurs

  • Blood gives the brain the oxygen and nutrients it needs to survive
  • Arteries are the blood vessels that provide this blood to the brain
  • When an artery is blocked or bursts, an area of the brain may not get enough blood
  • This can cause brain cells to die and lead to brain damage
