A stroke is a serious medical emergency that occurs when blood flow to the brain is disrupted, leading to brain damage.

The warning signs of a stroke can include sudden numbness or weakness in the face, arms or legs, difficulty speaking or understanding speech, sudden confusion or trouble with vision and severe headache. If not treated promptly, a stroke can lead to long-term disability or even death.
