So, let's wrap this video series up.
In transient ischemic attacks,
known as TIAs,
are caused by an interruption
of the blood flow
to a local portion of the brain.
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.
Medical evaluation will help you identify
the underlying cause of the TIA.
So, together, the healthcare team
and the patient
can plan the most effective
to help minimize the risk
of developing a stroke.
Thank you for watching our video today.
I hope you enjoyed learning
about the testing that we do for TIAs
and will implement that
in your own plan of care.
