Cerebral stroke, can it be recognized?

A brain stroke is a disease in which an acute disorder of cerebral circulation occurs. This occurs due to rupture of the artery during aneurysm (hemorrhagic stroke) or arterial thrombosis (ischemic). When the arteries of the brain rupture, any part is filled with blood and the normal functioning of the brain is disrupted . With an ischemic stroke , a blockage of blood vessels occurs, and blood cannot move along them. As in the first and in the second case, serious changes occur in the brain tissues, up to the death of individual sections.

Speech impairment during a stroke occurs when the part of the brain responsible for speech dies. In individual, severe cases, this process is irreversible, but basically speech, as a rule, is restored. It happens that speech is partially restored, so such a person can be difficult to understand. But with timely assistance, with the help of medications, the consequences of a stroke can be minimized.

A stroke of the brain has pronounced symptoms. The onset is usually sudden. The face turns red, loud breathing appears. The palpebral fissure, on the foci side, usually closes less, the angle of the mouth is lowered. In healthy limbs, automated movements occur. Hypotension of paralyzed limbs. Not articulate speech, fever, headache. In some cases, vomiting and involuntary urination (extensive stroke).

Coma with a stroke occurs in very severe cases: it is associated with loss of consciousness up to 28 hours. Accordingly, with a coma, the treatment is delayed, and the prognosis is not always positive. After a severe coma, a person remains disabled, bedridden until the end of his days.

Cerebral stroke, can it be recognized? The presence of symptoms indicates the possibility of a stroke. Therefore, it is not necessary to build theories and run around the patient in circles. Urgently need to call an ambulance. The sooner the first aid is provided to the patient, the more successful the treatment will be. It is necessary to give the patient more fresh air, peace.

Doctors around the world are concerned about the problem of "rejuvenating" a brain stroke. If even 30-40 years ago it was a problem for people who are clearly over 60, today, few people will be surprised with a stroke slightly after 40. This is due to a deterioration in the general standard of living, environmental conditions, and stress. Young men today can not realize themselves, as the unemployment rate is growing steadily. Against this background, stresses arise that can cause a stroke. But, as it was before, basically this disease is inherent in older people. Cyanide phenomena occur in the brain with blockage and thinning of the walls of blood vessels. If we talk about gender, then the number of cerebral strokes after 60 years is approximately the same, both among women and among men.

There is another factor contributing to the occurrence of stroke. This is stress. The negative emotions that a person accumulates in himself are fraught with the occurrence of strokes. Stress provokes the release of adrenaline into the blood, which in turn affects the increase in blood pressure and increases, respectively, the pulse. If cerebral atherosclerosis (cerebral vessels) is added to this, then the thinned walls of the vessels simply burst. And as a result, there is a stroke with all the aggravating consequences.

A brain stroke occurs where a person cares little about his health. Excessive alcohol consumption, fatty foods, and especially harmful smoking, in which vessels suffer. Taking care of your health in advance, you can avoid such a terrible disease as a stroke.
