A stroke is caused due to a blockage or bleeding of blood vessels, interrupting or decreasing the blood supply to the brain. When this occurs, brain does not get adequate oxygen. This may result in brain damage, long term disability or even death, according to a press release. Ischemic stroke and haemorrhagic stroke are two types of strokes.
The risk factors of strokes evolve over time, and with each passing second, the oxygen-deprived tissues continue to deteriorate and die. Accuracy, speed and safety are crucial to save one’s life in such circumstances, it added. To participate in the webinar, register at: https://bit.ly/ 2YMNYCs or scan the QR Code.
