Did you know that stroke is one of the top five causes of death in the United States? This video explains how to detect the warning signs of this serious health event.
When a stroke occurs, it stops blood flow to the brain, and the subsequent death of brain cells can cause several side effects. For instance, a stroke can produce slurred speech. This condition can also lead to visible complications. If a friend or family member has partial facial paralysis or limpness, contact emergency care. Limb weakness is another warning sign. The sooner ER help is sought, the less likely that a stroke will cause severe disability or death.
