What is a stroke?
According to Healthline, A blood clot or a ruptured blood artery interrupts blood flow to the brain, causing a stroke, also known as a cerebrovascular accident (CVA). When it result, brain tissue is damaged or destroyed when brain cells start to die.
There are two main categories for strokes:
Ischemic stroke: With around 85% of all instances, this is the most prevalent kind of stroke. It happens when a blood clot obstructs a brain artery, preventing oxygen- and blood-filled blood from getting to the injured area.
Hemorrhagic stroke: When a blood artery in the brain bursts, it damages brain tissue and results in bleeding.
Even though any form of stroke can be fatal, receiving treatment quickly increases the likelihood of both survival and recovery. As a result, it’s crucial to be aware of the symptoms of a stroke and to get medical help right away if you or someone you know exhibits them.
Stroke Warning Signals
Depending on the type of stroke and the area of the brain affected, the stroke warning symptoms can change. However, several widespread signs may point to the onset of a stroke. The term FAST is the most crucial item to keep in mind, which stands for:
F – Face drooping: Invite the subject to grin. Does the face sag on one side?
A- Arm Weakness: To raise both arms, request the person. Does one arm sag to the ground?
S – Speech difficulty: Get them to recite a short sentence. Is their speech slurred or hard to follow?
T – Time to contact 911: Dial 911 and take the person to the hospital right away if they exhibit any of these symptoms, even if they go away.
Other stroke warning signals may include:
1. sudden numbness or weakness, typically on one side of the body, of the face, arm, or leg.
2. Unexpected difficulty speaking or understanding speech.
3. sudden vision problems in either one or both eyes.
4. sudden stumbling, fainting, loss of balance, or lack of coordination.
5. abrupt, debilitating headache with no apparent explanation.
You should seek medical help right away if you or someone you know exhibits any of these symptoms. When it comes to treating a stroke, time is of importance. Postponing medical attention can result in lasting brain damage or even death.
