Stroke Awareness
 
     
 
 

A stroke (also called a cerebrovascular accident) occurs when blood vessels carrying oxygen and nutrients to a specific part of the brain suddenly burst or become blocked. When blood fails to get through to the affected parts of the brain, the oxygen supply is cut off, and brain cells began to die. The blood supply to the brain is very important. Brain cells must have a continuous supply of oxygen and other nutrients from blood in order to function. To meet this demand, blood is pumped continuously from the heart to the brain via several artery groups. Within the brain, these arteries (known as cerebral arteries) branched into tiny vessels called capillaries. These thin walled vessels supply the nutrients to millions of nerve cells within the brain. When this continuous blood supply is disrupted , a stroke results.

What causes stroke?
High blood pressure develops for a variety of reasons. Lifestyle factors such as being overweight, drinking too much alcohol, getting little exercise and eating an unhealthy diet all contribute to high blood pressure. It is also more common in the middle aged and elderly; it is estimated that about 25 per cent of middle-aged people and half of those aged 75 and older have high blood pressure.
