The human brain is a complicated organ that requires constant blood flow. Brain death can occur within a few minutes of a blood flow disturbance, which prevents the brain from receiving essential nutrients like glucose and oxygen.
A stroke often referred to as a brain stroke or a cerebrovascular accident, is a disorder in which the blood flow to a section of the brain is significantly reduced or stopped. It is a medical emergency in which the blood flow is restricted, depriving the brain’s cells of nutrition and oxygen, causing them to die within minutes. Because brain cells (neurons) cannot repair, there is lasting harm and irreversible repercussions.
