What is a TIA?
A Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) is often called a mini-stroke, but it’s really a major warning.
TIA is a temporary blockage of blood flow to the brain. Since it doesn’t cause permanent damage, it’s often ignored. But this is a big mistake. TIAs may signal a full-blown stroke ahead.

Stroke is a medical emergency. If someone is experiencing symptoms, they should still call 9-1-1 as soon as possible. By learning and sharing the F.A.S.T. warning signs, you just might save a life from stroke.
