In simplest medical terms, a stroke is a sudden loss of consciousness that results from the lack of oxygen to the brain because of a rupture or occlusion of a blood vessel. The physical damage that results from a stroke depends in large part on the length of time a particular section of the brain is without oxygen. Diagnosing a stroke correctly and treating the causes and symptoms efficiently can make a significant difference in the amount of resulting physical disability that occurs from the resulting brain injury.
