Strokes are caused due to lack of blood flow to the brain.

A temporary lack of blood flow can cause a mini-stroke or TIA ( transient ischemic attack ) and a permanent lack of blood flow can cause a stroke. These are caused by a clot in the arteries or a hemorrhage. A full stroke can cause permanent damage or disability.

Immediate medical help can prevent death or serious damage to a person. If you are experiencing these cardiovascular symptoms like a heart attack or stroke call 911 right away. One very important thing to remember is do not drive anyone who is having a stroke to the hospital let the paramedics take control of the situation. The paramedics have clot-busting medications( TPA) on board in case the symptoms become more serious.
