What is a stroke?
A stroke is a medical emergency where a sudden interruption of oxygen-rich blood to the brain occurs. Most often this is caused by an abrupt blockage of arteries leading to the brain (known as an ischemic stroke). Another, less common, type of stroke is caused by bleeding into the brain tissue (known as a hemorrhagic stroke). A stroke can cause loss of brain function and can affect movement and speech.
