What is a Stroke?
Strokes come in many different shapes and sizes with significant differences. Essentially, a stroke is what happens when blood cannot supply oxygen and vital nutrients to your brain. When brain cells do not receive sufficient oxygen and nutrients, they die.
The two main ways in which a stroke occurs is when a blood clot blocks a blood vessel (Ischaemic Stroke) or when a blood vessel leaks or breaks (Haemorrhagic Stroke).
