Types of Strokes

Three Types of Strokes:

Strokes can be subdivided into subarachanoid hemorrhage, ischemic stroke and intracerebral hemorrhage.

Subarachanoid Hemorrhage:

Subarachanoid hemorrhage is usually accompanied by a sudden dramatic onset of a severe headache.

Ischemic Stroke:

Ischemic strokes are usually accompanied by a history of previous transient ischemic attacks. Patients with ischemic stroke don't have a headache and impaired consciousness.

Hemorrhagic Stroke:

Hemorrhagic stroke is characterized by focal neurological signs that developed suddenly and gradually worsen over minutes or hours. The onset of symptoms is not abrupt as in subarachanoid hemorrhage or embolic stroke. As the hemorrhage expands headache vomiting and altered mental status develop. Hypertension is the most important risk factor for hemorrhagic stroke.
