Stroke and Stroke Screening


What is a Stroke?

A stroke occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off.

There are two types of stroke : Ischemic and Hemorrhagic.

Ischemic stroke: it happens when a blood clot or plaque buildup blocks a blood vessel in the brain.

Hemorrhagic stroke: it results from blood vessels breaking and leaking into or around the brain.

Why Stroke Screening is important?

The best way to understand your risk for stroke is to know all of your risk factors, including the ones inside your body that you may not know about because you can’t see them or feel them. Early detection of disease allows for early intervention and treatment. There is no longer a reason to wait for a tragic event to occur. It may be prevented with a screening.
