Stroke is a loss of neurological function caused by an abrupt interruption of steady blood supply to the brain. Blood flow can be disrupted by a blockage, which causes ischemic stroke, or by bleeding in the brain, which causes hemorrhagic stroke, which is more dangerous. Ischemic stroke accounts for roughly 87 percent of all strokes. Strokes typically strike without warning, and the consequences can be severe.

It is critical that adequate blood flow and oxygen to the brain be restored as quickly as possible. The affected brain cells are either injured or die within minutes of being deprived of oxygen and critical nutrients. When brain cells die, they usually do not recover, causing severe damage that can lead to physical, cognitive, and mental impairments.
