Time (time) – If you see any of these signs or symptoms, that’s when you call 119 immediately (the original is the United Kingdom, so 999).
the cause of a stroke
Like other organs in our body, the brain needs oxygen and nutrients supplied by blood to function properly. When the blood supply is limited or interrupted, brain cells begin to die. This can lead to brain damage, disability and death.
There are two main causes of stroke.
Ischemia – which is caused by blood clotting interrupted blood supply, accounting for 85% of all strokes.
Bleeding – This is caused by a burst of weakened blood vessels.
There are also temporary ischemic seizures (TIA) that temporarily stop supplying blood to the brain. It is often called a mini-stroke, which often lasts for minutes to hours. This temporary ischemic seizure requires urgent treatment. Because this is a warning sign that there is a risk of a systemic stroke in the near future. Even if the symptoms are gone, seek medical advice as soon as possible.
The following conditions increase the risk of stroke:
1. High blood pressure
2. High cholesterol
3. Atrial fibrillation
Treatment depends on the type of stroke, such as which part of the brain was damaged and what caused it. Stroke treatment usually uses drug therapy. The drugs used here include drugs that prevent and relieve blood clotting and lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
In some cases, a surgical procedure may be required to remove blood clotting. In the case of hemorrhagic stroke, surgery can also be performed to treat brain swelling and reduce the risk of future bleeding.
The risk of stroke can be significantly reduced through healthy living such as:
1. Have a healthy meal.
2. Exercise regularly.
3. Drinking should be moderate.
4. Don’t smoke.
If the risk of stroke is increasing, it is important to effectively manage the risk by medication such as lowering high blood pressure or lowering cholesterol levels.
This is particularly important because experiencing stroke or transient ischemic seizures (TIA) in the past increases the risk of other strokes.
