Reviewing Your Stroke Risk [INFOGRAPHIC]

Last updated 8 months ago

Strokes are sometimes called brain attacks because they affect the brain in much the same way that a heart attack affects the heart. When a stroke occurs, blood flow to the brain is diminished or cut off entirely, which causes brain tissue to die. As the tissue dies, there is no reviving it. That is why strokes so often lead to disability and even death, and why urgent hospital care is so important. One of the best ways you can prevent a stroke from happening to you is to understand your risk factors and what you can do to change them. Lakeview Regional Medical Center in Covington put together this infographic to help explain the things you need to know about strokes. Please help everyone you love get a handle on their own risk factors by sharing this helpful information with them.
