Stroke Risk Assessment

Stroke risk assessment is the evaluation of a person’s health and lifestyle in order to see if he is at risk for a stroke in the future. Stroke is a condition where there is a loss of brain function due to a rupture in a blood vessel in the brain. It is a serious condition and can also lead to a death of a person or paralysis. By undergoing a stroke risk assessment, one can take the necessary precautions in life in order to reduce the risk of a stroke. While making the evaluation, one must focus on the kind of lifestyle the person leads, stress factors, sleep habits, genetic factors and so on.
