Cerebral Ischemia

Cerebral ischemia, also called brain ischemia, is a condition that results in low blood flow and poor oxygen delivery to brain tissue, which in turn can injure neurons and affect normal brain function.

The main symptoms of cerebral ischemia are:

  • Impairment in vision or blindness
  • Speaking difficulties
  • Coordination difficulties
  • Weakness
  • Unconsciousness

Cerebral ischemia can be a cause for a variety of serious conditions including stroke, cardiorespiratory arrest and irreversible brain damage.
