Stroke

A stroke occurs when the blood supply to a part of the brain is interrupted by a clot or bleeding. This interruption causes brain cells to go without oxygen. The symptoms a person shows when he/she is having a stroke is what results from the cell death caused from this lack of oxygen. A stroke is a medical emergency and St. Vincent Healthcare is ready to provide 24/7 rapid diagnosis and treatment to stop stroke from progressing, reduce stroke damage and help stroke survivors recover to their full potential.
