What is a Stroke or Brain Attack?

  • Stroke or brain attack occurs when brain gets damaged due to cut off of blood supply, either due to blockage or rupture of blood vessel. The term “brain attack” has been used for stroke to remind people to take stroke as seriously as one would take heart attack. Stroke is as serious and life threatening as heart attack and is a potentially treatable disease.

    I agree stroke is serious ! My father had paralysis of arm and leg and they say the drug to dissolve the clot needs to be given only in first few hours, is that right ??

    Thanks

    Yes the type of the stroke determines the time, for all practical purpose the limit to give the lytic drug is 4.5 hours

    But with catheters being now available time can be extended

    For some types time for the catheters can be beyond 12 hours

    Thanks for your question

    Even with the constant educating of family and friends, an entire understanding
    of the impact a tiny treat may have if it is not really a the main plan can be a challenge for anyone not close up and with all
    the situation. Because there isn’t any scientific proof that it will help
    burn away your fat, you’ll have to function as the judge of whether or not you see any actual advantages of applying this organic and natural remedy.

    Ask people near you who’ve dieted whenever they experienced these symptoms.
