Stroke is a condition that occurs when blood supply to the brain is interrupted or reduced due to a blockage (ischemic stroke) or rupture of blood vessels (hemorrhagic stroke). Without blood, the brain will not get oxygen and nutrition, so cells in some areas of the brain will die.
Recent research in the field of Medicine also shows the onset of stroke due to heart rhythm disorders. Which causes the appearance of blood clots that block blood vessels in the brain. So that cases of stroke appear without a history of hypertension.
To find out the condition of blood supply to the brain and heart function, we need data that can be obtained from Echocardiografy or Cardiac Ultrasound examination or more commonly abbreviated as echo. This tool is used for examinations that give a picture of a heart that is throbbing and can record images perfectly, which can help doctors in evaluating heart health.
Movement of blood in blood vessels is very dependent on whether the heart is healthy or not. Because in an unhealthy heart condition, it will not be able to pump enough oxygen-rich blood to meet the body's needs, especially to the brain.
In order to be aware of the threat of stroke due to an unhealthy heart, it is advisable to have regular cardiac ultrasound.
