Turbo Thirsty You Guys!

If you brain were at a bar, it would totally be double fisting the blood:

Normal Flow of blood to the brain: 50 – 60 mL /100g of brain tissue per minute

Ask any of my classmates what happens as a result of ischemia [restriction of blood supply] to the brain, we will probably be able to tell you after (preferably before) our Neuro exam today.

Hint: bad news bears!

What my classmates will also be able to tell you is what a physical therapist can do to help! Ask a physical therapist what we do to help improve function after a stroke. Check it out at The American Physical Therapy Association
