STARS: Steps Against Recurrent Stroke
Stroke occurs when blood flow to a part of the brain is interrupted, resulting in loss of function and possibly even death. Patients that have experienced and survived a stroke are unfortunately at a greater risk for suffering from a recurrent episode. In this video, the National Stroke Association discusses this increased risk and what those at risk can do to help prevent a recurrent stroke . Exercising, healthy eating, and taking medications if you need them can be beneficial in preventing future episodes.
