What is a stroke?

The two forms of stroke are ischemic – blockage of a blood vessel supplying the brain, and hemorrhagic – bleeding into or around the brain. In an ischemic stroke, a blood clot blocks or plugs a blood vessel or artery in the brain. About 80 percent of all strokes are ischemic. In a hemorrhagic stroke, a blood vessel in the brain breaks and bleeds into the brain. About 20 percent of strokes are hemorrhagic.

What happens when you have a stroke?

When a stroke occurs, the blood supply to part of the brain is suddenly interrupted. Brain cells die when they no longer receive oxygen and nutrients from the blood or there is sudden bleeding into or around the brain.

What are the symptoms of a stroke?

Symptoms include sudden numbness or weakness, especially on one side of the body; sudden confusion or trouble speaking or understanding speech; sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes; sudden trouble with walking, dizziness, or loss of balance or coordination; or sudden severe headache with no known cause. An easy way to remember the symptoms is F.A.S.T i.e. Facial Droop, Arm Weakness, Speech, Time

What should I do if I think someone is having a stroke?

During a stroke, bystanders should know the signs and act in time. If you believe someone is having a stroke — if the person loses the ability to speak, to move an arm or leg on one side, or experiences facial paralysis on one side — call 108 immediately. Stroke is a medical emergency. Immediate stroke treatment may save someone’s life and enhance his or her chances for successful rehabilitation and recovery.

Why is it important to get to the hospital as quickly as possible?

Ischemic strokes, the most common strokes, can be treated with a drug called tPA, which dissolves artery-obstructing clots. The window of opportunity to use TPA to treat stroke patients is 4.5 hrs, so the sooner stroke patients can get to the hospital to be evaluated and receive treatment, the better their outcome. Stroke patients who receive tPA for their stroke symptoms are at least 30 percent more likely to recover from their stroke with less disability after three months than those who present to the hospital after three hours and are thus unable to receive TPA

What are the risk factors for stroke?

There are things you can do to lower your risk of stroke.

  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease with atrial fibrillation
  • Smoking -Diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • The family history of stroke

What is the treatment for stroke?

Generally, there are three treatment stages for stroke: Prevention Therapy immediately after the stroke, Post-stroke rehabilitation.

What is the prognosis for stroke?

A common disability that results from stroke is complete paralysis on one side of the body, called hemiplegia one-sided weakness or hemiparesis. Problems with thinking, awareness, attention, learning, judgment, and memory. Understanding or forming speech. Emotional problems; controlling their emotions or may express inappropriate emotions, Depression.

What can be done to reduce the risk of stroke?

To reduce your risk of stroke:

  • Monitor your blood pressure,
  • Track your cholesterol level & BSL, Stop smoking, Exercise regularly,
