Even though stroke may happen to anyone from any age group, the 30-50 year-olds are at a higher risk because of the changing lifestyle and stress. A brain attack happens when the blood supply to the brain is interrupted or when a nerve or a blood vessel inside the brain bursts. In either of these situations, not enough oxygen reaches the brain. As a result, the brain can’t function properly resulting in a person’s death.

Type of stroke

Ischemic stroke:

This is a type of stroke wherein the blood vessels supplying blood to the brain become narrowed or blocked due to clotting. Blood clots are formed due to the accumulation of fat in the inner wall of the arteries of the brain. In this condition, there is not enough blood supply to the brain, due to which the functioning of the brain comes to a standstill.
