Stroke - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (4713 words)
The term "brain attack" is starting to come into use in the United States for stroke, just as the term "heart attack" is used for myocardial infarction, where a cutoff of blood causes necrosis to the tissue of the heart.
Other immediate strategies to protect the brain during stroke include ensuring that blood sugar is as normal as possible (such as commencement of an insulin sliding scale in known diabetics), and that the stroke patient is receiving adequate oxygen and intravenous fluids.
Wepfer also identified the main arteries supplying the brain, the vertebral and carotid arteries, and identified the cause of ischemic stroke when he suggested that apoplexy might be caused by a blockage to those vessels.

Brain injury can be either a brain haemorrhage which is bleeding into the brain tissue or breakdown of the brain tissue resulting in cysts.
The group have shown that brain haemorrhage is associated with fluctuating brain oxygenation, implying wide variations in the blood supply to the brain.
It supports a view that, while brain haemorrhage is likely to be due to fluctuations in the blood and oxygen supply to the brain, the formation of cysts in the brain is due to an entirely different mechanism — one alternative proposition is that infection may play a part.
