Understanding Stroke: Signs, symptoms and treatment

The direct cause of stroke due to a blocked blood supply to the brain is one of the arteries: Obstruction of the arteries, which leads to a disorder of organs and A member has ceased its activity.


The most common symptom is a disruption in the body’s organs, such as sudden paralysis in one hand and a foot. Of course, any sudden disruption in activity and brain function, such as impaired cognition, thinking, vision and memory can be a sign of stroke. For example, if suddenly the person with memory impairment can be a sign of stroke. This problem occurs because the blood is not a moment of brain.


Many times these symptoms are transient and caused certain symptoms appear shortly after starting to be high.

The symptoms of stroke are more important, said in the next attack may happen in the next few seconds or even a few days and will not be returned. For this reason, transient signs of stroke symptoms are more important.

A person with the disorder is sudden and transient. For example, in a moment loses his sight or his hand goes down or loses his memory and returns to normal after a short time have quickly become one of the emergency center or clinic, and, if approved, treatments do next.

If this is not transient symptoms the patient should see a doctor as soon as possible and no later than 4 hours.

* Refrain from medical procedures

Unfortunately, some of their families do things that are harmful and may lead to death. For example, with symptoms of stroke, high blood pressure family members to imagine they will try feeding tablets, blood pressure reduction that this is very dangerous and the emergency before the medical aspect of the patient’s family should not have to take any action to carry out.

High blood pressure in stroke, a kind of defense mechanism of the body to blood vessel becomes constricted and blocked its passage. Pressure pills disturb this defense mechanism and eliminates chances of patient survival.

With the advent of stroke symptoms, the patient should be placed in the case of mental and physical relaxation. As well as all actions that needs to be done to open the way breathing example of artificial teeth in the mouth secretions of sick leave and have him sleep on her side so she could breathe easily and quickly as possible with the patient’s emergency contact to the hospital.
