Stroke Care - Bronson Methodist Hospital
A stroke, sometimes called a "brain attack," occurs when blood flow to the brain is interrupted. When a stroke occurs, brain cells in the immediate area begin to die because they stop getting the oxygen and nutrients they need to function. There are two major kinds of stroke:
- An ischemic stroke is caused by a blood clot that blocks or plugs a blood vessel or artery in the brain.
- A hemorrhagic stroke is caused by a blood vessel in the brain that breaks and bleeds into the brain.
Strokes can cause a loss of the ability to speak, memory problems, or paralysis on one side of the body. Getting the right care at the right time can help reduce the risk of complications and another stroke. These measures show some of the standards of stroke care that Bronson Methodist Hospital follows for adults who have had a stroke.
