Recognizing, Preventing, and Treating a TIA or Mini-Stroke
A transient ischemic attack, or TIA, is a temporary condition that is caused by an interruption of blood flow to the brain. These serious medical episodes can be a warning of a full-blown stroke, so it is important that you are able to recognize the signs of TIA and act as soon as possible. In this video, you can learn more about the signs of TIA and what you should do if you or someone you know experiences them.
Not every potentially life-threatening medical event provides a warning before it strikes. When you recognize the signs of a TIA, consider seeking emergency care as soon as possible to help prevent the consequences of a stroke.
