Stroke test. Nurse watching as an elderly woman takes a stroke test. A stroke (cerebrovascular accident, CVA) occurs when blood flow to the brain is interrupted or reduced, causing death of brain tissue. This can lead to impaired brain function, which can sometimes be recovered. Tests are used to assess how a patient has been affected and whether recovery is taking place.
