Medicine and Health Sciences | Nursing
Stroke or cerebrovascular accident (CVA) is the third leading cause of death in the United States (Mvundura, McGruder, Khoury, Valdez, & Yoon, 2011). Ischemic strokes make up about 86% of the strokes that occur, (Patel, & White, 2011) hemorrhagic and cryptogenic strokes make up for the other 15%. The topic that is covered in this poster is ischemic stroke. The biggest way to alter the amount of strokes that happen are to prevent them. More and more risk factors are being found that contribute to strokes. Once the inflammatory and immune response begins once triggered by hypoxia it cannot be reversed.
