Stroke occurs when arteries supplying oxygen and nutrients to a part of the brain are broken or abruptly blocked by a blood clot. The consequence of this symptom is that the part of the brain falls short of receiving enough oxygen and brain cells die within minutes.
The patient may be paralyzed, comatose, or even dead depending on the area of the brain affected as well as the degree of the injury. That is why it is important to recognize the warning signs of a cerebrovascular accident.
