Cerebrovascular ACCIDENT OR STROKE
By: Int.Nurse1
——————
A stroke occurs when blood flow to a part of the brain stops.
A stroke is sometimes called a “brain attack.”
If blood flow is cut off for longer than a few seconds, the brain cannot get nutrients and
oxygen. Brain cells can die, causing lasting damage. There are two major types of stroke:
1.Ischemic stroke
2.Hemorrhagic stroke.

Ischemic stroke occur when a blood vessel that supplies blood to the brain is blocked by a blood clot.

Hemorrhagic stroke
There are two types of stroke, hemorrhagic and ischemic. Hemorrhagic strokes are less common, in fact only 15 percent of all strokes are hemorrhagic, but they are responsible for about 40 percent of all stroke deaths.

A hemorrhagic stroke is either a brain aneurysm burst or a weakened blood vessel leak. Blood spills into or around the brain and creates swelling and pressure, damaging cells and tissue in the brain. There are two types of hemorrhagic stroke called intracerebal and subarachnoid.
Stroke is a deadly condition which can be prevented.
