Stroke occurs when there is oxygen deprivation to the brain. It occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is interrupted or reduced, preventing brain tissue from getting oxygen and nutrients. Brain cells begin to die in minutes. A stroke is a medical emergency, and prompt treatment is crucial. Early action can reduce brain damage and other complications. World Stroke Day serves to educate about how dangerous stroke can be and also help people take steps to reduce risk factors for the condition.
One in four people could suffer a stroke. World Stroke Day is an opportunity for advertisers to support medical professionals in their efforts to prevent stroke and raise awareness about risk factors.
