What is a Treatment for Stroke


So, What is a Treatment for Stroke?

Good Question? Though, before we get into a treatment for stroke, let’s identify some risk factors of stroke; define the different types of strokes, along with their causes and symptoms, as well as some complications of this disease.

IDENTIFIED RISK FACTORS OF STROKES

Stroke risk can be increased by many factors. Potentially treatable stroke factors include:

Medical Risk Factors

  •  Personal or family history of stroke, heart attack or transient ischemic attack.
  • Personal or family history of stroke, heart attack or transient ischemic attack.
  • Cigarette smoking or exposure to second hand smoke
  • High Blood pressure – reading higher than 120/80 mm Hg
  • Diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • Cardiovascular disease including heart defects, heart failure, abnormal heart rhythum or heart infection
  • Obstructive sleep apnea

Lifestyle risk factors

  • Being obese or overweight
  • Physical inactivity
  • Binge or Heavy drinking
  • Use of illicit drugs (such as methamphetamines and cocaine


Other factors include

  • Hormone: Use of birth hormone therapies or birth control pills that include estrogen, along with high levels of estrogen from childbirth and pregnancy.
  • Race: African-Americans have a higher risk of stroke than people of other races
  • Age: People age 55 or older have a higher risk of stroke than younger people
  • Sex: Men are of higher risk of stroke than women. Older women are at higher risk than younger women; and, they are more likely to die of strokes than are men.

THREE MAIN TYPES OF STROKES

Hemorrhagic stroke: when a weakened blood vessel ruptures, this type of stroke occurs; and, normally occurs as a result of a arteriovenous malformation or an aneurysms.

Transient ischemic attacks: after blood flow fails to reach part of the brain, this type of stroke occurs. However, symptoms cease when normal blood flow resumes after a short amount of time.

Ischemic stroke—This is the most common type of stroke; where, a blood clot prevents oxygen and blood from reaching the brain.


COMMON CAUSES OF A STROKE

Generally, when a blood vessel is blocked by a clot or bursts, the blood supply to the brain is interrupted, hence causing a stroke. The supply of nutrients and oxygen are cut off; thereby, causing damage to the brain tissue where the brain cells begin to die.

CAUSES FOR THREE MAIN TYPES OF STROKES 

The most common type of hemorrhagic stroke is an Intracerebral hemorrhage. This occurs after an artery in the brain bursts and brain tissue becomes flooded with blood.

More on Hemorrhagic strokes:

When arteries in the brain either burst or leak, a Hemorrhagic strokes occurs.

This puts pressure on brain cells and damages them. It also reduces the blood supply to the brain tissue after the hemorrhage. Blood vessels can then burst and spill blood near the surface of the brain, sending blood into the space between the skull and the brain. or into the brain. The rupture can be caused by conditions including trauma, blood thinning medications, hypertension and aneurysms.


Transient ischemic attac
ks: TIAs are different from the other types because the flow of blood to the brain is interrupted only briefly. TIAs are often caused by other clots or blood clots; thus, they are very similar to ischemic strokes. They too are regarded as medical emergencies , even if their symptoms and blockage of the artery are temporary. They indicate that there is a clot source in the heart and partially blocked artery and should serve as warning signs for future strokes.

Ischemic stroke: This type of stroke consist of narrowing of the arteries leading to the brain; followed by blockages  to the brain resulting in ischemia (severely reduced blood flow that damages brain cells). Blood clots often cause these blockages, which can form in the brain arteries. Before being swept through the bloodstream and into narrower arteries in the brain, they can occur in other blood vessels in the body. Too, fatty deposits in the arteries (called plaque) can cause clots that result in ischemia.


MAIN STROKE SYMPTOMS

Without warning, symptoms of a stroke can often appear.

Main stroke symptoms include:

  • Confusion (trouble understanding and speaking)
  •  Headache (possibly with vomiting or altered consciousness)
  • Inability to move parts of the face, arm, or leg, and numbness, particularly on one side of the body.0
  • Vision impaired (in one or both eyes)
  • Walking impaired (including dizziness and lack of coordination).

Depending upon how quickly a stroke is diagnosed and treated, an individual can experience permanent or temporary disabilities after a stroke. In turn, leading to long term health problems.

In addition to the problems listed above, individuals may also experience the following:

  • So Depression
  • Bowel or bladder control problems
  • Weakness or paralysis on one or both sides of the body
  • Pain in the feet and hands that gets worse with temperature changes and movement
  • Trouble expressing or controlling emotions

Symptoms may vary and range in severity


What is F.A.S.T.?

F.A.S.T. is an acronym used to identify the onset of a stroke and to remember the signs of stroke. These acronyms stand for:

Face dropping—does one side of the face droop when the person tries to smile?

Arm weakness—does one arm drift downward when the person tries to raise both their arms?

Speech difficulty—is their speech strange or slurred when the person tries to speak?

Time to call—emergency services

Complications May Include:

As mentioned above (and worth repeating) a stroke can sometimes cause permanent or temporary disabilities, depending on how long the brain lacks oxygen and blood flow and which part was affected by the stroke.

Loss of muscle movementParalysis or lose control of certain muscles on one side of the body (i.e. those on one side of face or one arm, and or one leg).

Difficulty swallowing or talking—A stroke can affect control of the muscles in throat and mouth, making it difficult to eat, swallow or talk clearly. Difficulty understanding and or speaking, writing, or reading.

Difficulties thinking and Memory loss—Many may have difficulty thinking, and may experience some memory loss. Others have trouble reasoning, making judgments and understanding concepts.

Emotional problems—Many people may develop depression; or may have difficulty controlling emotions

Pain—numbness, pain, or other strange sensations may occur in the parts of the body affected by stroke. Sensitivity to temperature changes, especially extreme cold, may occur after a stroke. These complications are known as central pain syndrome or stroke pain. This condition usually develops several weeks after a stroke, and may improve over time.

Along with medicines physical therapy may help  people who’ve had stroke return to activities affected by paralysis, such as eating, dressing and walking.

Speech therapy may help along with medicines; which now leads us to an answer to the subject question:
