A stroke, also known as a cerebrovascular accident or CVA is when part of the brain loses its blood supply and the part of the body that the blood-deprived brain cells control stops working. This loss of blood supply can be ischemic because of lack of blood flow, or hemorrhagic because of bleeding into brain tissue. A stroke is a medical emergency because strokes can lead to death or permanent disability.
Stroke can be classified as:
• Ischemic strokes
• Haemorrhagic strokes
Transient ischemic attacks (TIAs), also referred to as mini-strokes
: It is defined as group of neurological disorders characterized by epileptic seizures. Epileptic seizures occur due to impulsive electrical activity in the brain.
