One of the most common death rates in the USA and the leading cause of disability is the stroke.

It occurs when there is not enough blood to feed the brain. When the arteries that lead to the brain are blocked than that is an Ischemic stroke. If the blood flow is reduced, than that is Hemorrhagic stroke.

Stroke

The brain is very complex organ and it controls all other functions in the body. So, when the blood vessel that feed the brain is blocked by a cloth then the brain doesn’t get oxygen and results in cell death.

Consequently those parts of the body that are affected will stop function properly because they cannot be controlled by the brain.
