There may be blockage to the human arterial system, and the result can be blood clot or the presence of atherosclerosis.

Also, these is much concern about migraine, substance use disorder, and energy drinks (1, 2, 3).
Management of these serious illnesses will entail laboratory assessments such as electroencephalogram, angiography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging. The use of thrombectomy is one way to reverse some stroke symptoms. So will oxygen and intravenous fluids. Additional approaches include carotid artery stenting, aneurysm management, and the use of arteriovenous malformation assessment (1, 2, 3).
Other concerns include cardiac arrest as these scenarios lead to irreversible brain damage. The client may develop subarachnoid hemorrhage. The human body will in many of these cases suffer from hypoperfusion of the brain. It may present as multifocal or focal damage to that organ (1, 2, 3, 4).
