Gabriela M. Ortega, Supervisor for Acute Rehabilitation at West Kendall Baptist Hospital, explains a clot that prevents blood from being delivered to the brain causes a stroke, and the brain depends on its arteries to deliver oxygen and nutrients to the brain cells. When there is a clot, the brain does not receive what it needs.

Haronyd Melo Nunez, Manager of Rehab Services at West Kendall Baptist Hospital, says in a hemorrhagic stroke there are weakened blood vessels within the brain cavity that are ruptured and that is why bleeding occurs. In addition, because this is in an enclosed space, pressure is added to the cells causing damage as well. **************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
