TIA (Transient Ischemic Attack)

Some call it a mini-stroke, but it's really a major warning. Call 9-1-1.

What is a TIA?

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.

When you first notice symptoms, get help immediately. View a detailed illustration of a TIA.
