Why Stroke Matters
Stroke is a form of “BRAIN ATTACK” which occurs when the flow of blood is cut off/restricted to the brain area. Like all other parts of body our brain cells too require oxygen & glucose to survive. When adequate amount is not supplied, it results into permanent brain damage & sometimes even death. Such emergencies requires immediate attention. There are almost 1 lakh stroke patients in India and the number increases every year. Even statistics shows that every 1 out of 4 people are likely to have stroke. Today stroke is the leading cause of disability all over the world and is the second leading cause of death, but almost all strokes can be prevented.
Studies says that around 80 million people have survived stroke worldwide. Many stroke survivors have faced noticeable challenges like physical disability, communication difficulties and considerable changes in how they think and feel. And hence stroke treatment is necessary.
The stroke is divided into 2 categories: –
As per records about 80% strokes are ischemic strokes. In such condition, clots are formed in the brain blood vessels or any blood vessel of the body. These clots block the flow of blood into the brain. It is similar to a cardiac arrest only difference is it occurs in blood vessels of the brain.
It is an alarming form of stroke. It happens when the blood vessels of the brain are broken or raptured. As a result blood starts out pouring into the tissues of the brain & thus causes damage to vital brain cells.
SYMPTOMS OF STROKE
Common symptoms of strokes can be noticed when there’s difficulty seeing in one or both eyes, loss of coordination, dizziness, difficulty in walking, and difficulty in understanding. However, the National Stroke Association recommends the FAST Method to help identify the early-warning signs of stroke:

Arms: When you raise both arms, does one arm drift down?
Speech: Is your speech slurred? Are you having trouble talking?
Time: If you experience any of these symptoms VISIT doctor immediately.
