Power of Generation - stroke

 

Stroke is one of the leading causes of death and the leading preventable cause of disability. The right care right away can save both lives and quality of life. Stroke can happen to anyone at any time, including young people. The quicker you recognize the signs of stroke and seek medical care, the higher your likelihood of having a successful recovery. Therefore, it is important to know how to identify that a stroke is happening.
 

Strokes seem to come out of the blue but screening test can help identify and reduce the risks.

With our experienced experts and leading-edge technology devices, stroke is preventable.

 
Risk factors
 

  1. Hypertension – Patients with blood pressure higher than 140/80 mmHg. This can cause damage to blood vessel walls and eventually lead to a stroke.
  2. Diabetes mellitus – leads to narrow or blocked blood vessels. (Blood sugar before having breakfast > 110 mg/dL detected by two tests.)
  3. Hyperlipidemia – leads to blocked blood flow to the brain resulting in paralysis.
  4. Smoking - The more cigarettes you smoke, the higher your risk of having a stroke. The substances in cigarettes irritate the walls of blood vessels and this can lead to narrow blood flow.
  5. Lack of exercise
  6. Stress - Stress hormones increases blood pressure, and when those hormones are around long-term, it can lead to high blood pressure which is the leading cause of strokes.
  7. Obesity

FAST – spot stroke signs

It is important to remember that a stroke is a medical emergency and you should seek medical attention immediately. If someone you know might be having a stroke, it is important to think FAST.

F - Face Drooping : Ask the person to smile. Is the person's smile uneven or lopsided?
A - Arm Weakness : Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downwards?
S - Speech Difficulty : Is the speech slurred? Is the person unable to speak or is hard to understand?
T - Time To Call : If someone shows any of these symptoms, even if the symptoms go away, call for immediate medical attention.

Some other symptoms include sudden trouble walking, loss of balance, and sudden severe headache or dizziness.

The magic number ‘4.5’ hours – the golden period of stroke

The gold standard treatment for ischemic stroke is an injection of recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rtPA). This potent clot-busting drug is ideally given 4.5 hours after stroke symptoms begin. For patients who come to the hospital later than 4.5 hours, the doctor may have to remove the clot using an endovascular procedure. Read more...
