0 Recognize and Prevent Stroke


Stroke is the second leading cause of death in the world with more than 5.1 million digits. The mortality rate in men and women are relatively similar, but mortality rates in poor countries and developing countries is much greater than the stroke death rate in developed countries. Year 2020, the death rate from stroke is expected to reach 6.7 million people.
Stroke occurs when blood vessels in the brain rupture or blockage. Stroke symptoms lasting more than 24 hours.
Based on the cause, stroke is divided into two kinds, namely:

1. Cerebral haemorrhage (stroke hemorajik), namely a stroke which occurred because of
rupture of blood vessels.
2. Ischaemic stroke (ischemic stroke), which is a stroke that occurred because of blockage of
blood vessels.

Visits and symptoms, stroke is divided into three kinds, namely:
1. Stroke while (recovered within a few minutes or hours).
2. Minor stroke (cured in a few weeks).
3. Severe stroke (cured by leaving the disabled, can not be recovered, even in a few months (year) can lead to death.
Both the stroke while, light and heavy has five main symptoms are:
1. Dizziness or headaches suddenly, without knowing why.
2. The sudden loss of balance, coordination and body control.
3. Loss of sight in one or both eyes.
4. Lost consciousness and did not speak clearly.
5. Weakness and disability in the face, arms, hands, especially on one side of the body.

Actions and

Although only a temporary stroke, but is recommended for patients quickly to the nearest hospital or doctor. Handling the doctor or the hospital will determine the patient's recovery.

patients can be cured, and stroke, but ma
Boldny died or suffered permanent disability (paralysis, impaired speech and a loss of some memory). Hemorajik Stroke has a greater probabiliitas as the cause of chickenpox or death than ischemic stroke.

A person who had suffered a mild stroke can get
Bold a repeat stroke. Even very high risk of stroke recurrence. Less is more, and five patients will receive secondary stroke within five years. But with the development of stroke treatment, the risk of recurrence of the disease can be reduced. Acetyl salicylic acid that is widely used by patients with ischemic stroke (TIA) can reduce the risk of secondary stroke by 25-33%.

Surgery to remove blockages in the carotid artery blood flow to the brain also can reduce the risk of stroke in patients with ischemic stroke (TIA). But only a small proportion of patients may undergo surgery in medicine anti-clotting drug may be used to reduce the risk of stroke due to cardiac rhythm disturbances. However, only a small proportion of patients who receive them.

Anyone will never know when the stroke came. However, preventive measures below may be a breath of fresh air for everyone:

+ Routine checking of blood pressure
Blood pressure level is the most dominant factor in all types of stroke. The higher the blood pressure the greater the risk of stroke. If blood pressure increases, immediately consult a physician. Blood pressure should be aware that if the hig
Boldhest figure in the top 135 and bottom number is 85.

+ Beware of arrhythmia (fibrillation attrial)
Showed abnormal heartbeats that cause functional changes and the collected blood clot within the heart. Heart rate of blood clots that can move into the bloodstream that cause strokes. Arrhythmia can be detected with the pulse rate.

+ Stop smoking and anti-alcohol
Smoking may increase the risk of stroke doubles. As with cigarettes, alcohol can increase the risk of stroke and other diseases such as liver.

+ Check your cholesterol levels in the body
Knowing the level of c
Boldholesterol can increase awareness of stroke. High cholesterol leads to increased risk of stroke. If cholesterol is high, then quickly lowered by choosing foods to lower cholesterol. In order not excessive cholesterol in the body, then replace the intake of saturated fats with unsaturated fatty acid intake, such as omega three, six and nine.

+ Controls blood sugar levels
Diabetes can increase the risk of stroke. If you are diabetic, consult with a doctor about the foods and beverages can be consumed to lower blood sugar.

+ sport regular
brisk walking at least 30 minutes a day can reduce stroke risk. You can also do sports pool, bike, dance, golf, or tennis. Select a sport you enjoy and do regularly three times a week.

+ Consumption of low-sodium salt and fat diet
Reduce salt intake high bersodium. Conversely consume fruits, vegetables, and grains to reduce the risk of stroke.

+ Beware of blood circulation disorders
Stroke associated with the heart, arteries and veins. The three parts are important to the circulation of blood throughout the body, including to the brain and heart. When there are fatty deposits that block the flow, then the risk of stroke increases. This problem can be treated. Operation is also able to overcome the fatty deposits that block arteries.
