Identifying and handling stroke symptoms...

The terms "stroke," "paralysis," "brain attack," and "lakwa" are sometimes used interchangeably to refer to the same condition. Approximately 15 million individuals worldwide experience a stroke each year; 5 million of them may away and an additional 5 million are left permanently crippled, according to reports. According to reports, the frequency of stroke cases in india has reportedly increased by 17.5% in the past 15 years.

Dr. Darshan Doshi, a neurology consultant at PD Hinduja Hospital and Medical Research Center, stated in an interview with HT lifestyle that there are primarily two forms of stroke:

Signs and symptoms of a stroke:

Abrupt unsteadiness while moving abrupt double eyesight or loss of vision Abruptly, the face tilts to one side. Unexpected weakness in one arm or leg Unexpected speech slurring or unusual language Momentum.

If you see any of these symptoms, head straight to a nearby hospital's emergency room.

Stroke risk factors

"People with Diabetes, Hypertension, High Cholesterol, Cardiac Problems, as well as those who smoke cigarettes, eat tobacco, or drink excessive alcohol are at higher risk for developing stroke," stated Dr. Darshan Doshi.

Options for stroke treatment

According to Dr. Darshan Doshi, a clot-busting medication can be administered to a patient with a blood clot in the brain within the first four and a half hours after the stroke begins. We can do thrombectomy (clot removal) and angiography for up to 24 hours in some circumstances.

Call for emergency medical assistance right away if you or someone you know is experiencing any of these symptoms. Thanks to recent developments, recovery from a stroke is more likely the sooner it is treated.

Neurosurgeon Dr. Aradhana Chauhan, of Sahyadri Super Speciality Hospital in Deccan Gymkhana, Pune, contributed her knowledge to the discussion by saying, "Stroke is an emergency medical condition which requires to be diagnosed promptly because of how severely it affects the brain." Many common symptoms, like tingling numbness, weakness in any limb, unbalance, and facial deviation, are also serious signs that need to be treated right once. These signs and symptoms are cautionary tales. Knowing that time is of the essence is crucial, as an untreated stroke causes the loss of 1.9 million neurons every minute.
