With May being National Stroke Awareness Month, Neuroscience Medical Director of Broward Health, Dr. Shaye Moskowitz, joined Inside South Florida to explain what a stroke is and how you can avoid them.

“The blood supply brings blood and oxygen nutrients to the brain so that it can function,” says Moskowitz. “The stroke diagnosis is a broad one, but references the disruption of blood supply and those nutrients to the brain, preventing it from working”

Strokes come in different forms, but the warning signs remain the same.

“What we see clinically on the outside is the brain's functions not occurring,” says Moskowitz. “That might mean weakness, numbness, speaking problems, level of consciousness alteration. These are things we see, and they all come from the brain network.”

Dr. Moskowitz also warned that it is not only the older generation that has to be on the lookout.

“There are controllable risk factors,” says Moskowitz. “Smoking, blood pressure problems, and diabetes can increase your risk of stroke and obesity.”
