    00:01 So, let's wrap this video series up.

    00:03 In transient ischemic attacks, known as TIAs, are caused by an interruption of the blood flow to a local portion of the brain.

    00:12 Now TIAs are an early warning sign and you should seek immediate medical evaluation because the patient is at an increased risk for having a real stroke.

    00:21 Medical evaluation will help you identify the underlying cause of the TIA.

    00:25 So, together, the healthcare team and the patient can plan the most effective treatment options to help minimize the risk of developing a stroke.

    00:33 Thank you for watching our video today.

    00:36 I hope you enjoyed learning about the testing that we do for TIAs and will implement that in your own plan of care.
