Monitoring Stroke Risk

Learn How DailyDoctor Can Help You Take Back Control

Strokes, sometimes referred to as brain attacks, cause fear for many because they happen quickly and require immediate medical treatment. A stroke is caused by a sudden interruption in blood supply to the brain, which can happen for a variety of reasons.

Nearly 800,000 strokes occur in America each year—about 200,000 in patients who've already had one. 1

Clinical studies show that one of the best ways to reduce the probability of having both an initial and repeat stroke is by taking control of your blood pressure. Virtual check-ins with DailyDoctor can help you monitor your blood pressure and keep it within recommended goals.

Two Types of Stroke

Most strokes are caused by an abrupt blockage of the arteries that lead to your brain, which are called ischemic strokes. A second type of stroke is a hemorrhagic stroke, which is caused when a blood vessel bursts and bleeds into your brain tissue.

Clinical studies show that increased blood pressure control can reduce the risk of a 1st stroke by 46%—and a repeat stroke by over 22%. 2-3
