Ade Namnung Death, Stroke has claimed the lives of famous comedian Ade Namnung. Why would someone be affected by stroke and how to avoid this disease?
According to Dr Miriam Stoppard, stroke is also called cerebrovascular accident (CVA) resulting from brain damage due to blocked blood flow. Blood flow to the brain can be disrupted due to blockage (platelets or embolism) or leakage (haemorrhage) one of the arteries in the brain. CVA is more common in people with high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol levels.
“People with an irregular heartbeat (atrial fibrillation) are also more prone to stroke. After a stroke, which affected parts of the brain no longer functions and emergency medical care is needed, “he described, as reported in his book entitled” Family Health Guide “.
There are usually no signs of a stroke will occur, and if anything, only slightly. Patients with stroke should be rushed to the hospital to be checked and treated for permanent brain damage can be prevented. Effect of post-stroke vary, depending on the location and extent of damage. Its effects range from mild temporary symptoms, such as vision loss, to lifelong disability or coma and death in some people when a stroke causing extensive brain damage. If the symptoms disappear within 24 hours, the condition is known as a temporary ischemic attack (transient ischemic attack (TIA), which is a warning sign of stroke that may occur.
What causes it?
- About half of all troke occurs when blood clots form in the arteries of the brain. This process is called thrombosis serubrum.
- Serubrum embolism occurs when a fragment of a blood clot that has formed in the other body parts, such as the heart or major arteries in the neck, carried in the blood and lodged in the arteries that supply the brain. Nearly one-third of all strokes are caused by cerebral embolism.
- Cerebral hemorrhage, which causes about one-fifth of all strokes occur when an artery that drain the brain ruptures and blood seeps out into the brain.
Blood clots that cause platelet cerebrum and cerebral embolism is more likely to form in arteries that have been damaged by atherosclerosis, a buildup of fat condition (atheroma) in the artery wall. Factors that increase ateroskleoris is a high-fat diet, smoking, diabetes mellitus, and elevated levels of blood cholesterol.
What are the risks?
- The risk of embolism, platelets, or increased cerebral hemorrhage due to high blood pressure were examined and treated promptly.
- Cerebral embolism may be a complication of heart problems such as heart rhythm abnormalities, heart valve abnormalities, and heart attack recently occurred, all of which can cause formation of blood clots in the heart.
- Crescent-cell anemia or abnormal red blood cells, also increase the risk of cerebral thrombosis due to abnormal blood cells tend to clump and clog the blood vessels.
- Conditions are less common is thrombosis due to narrowing and arterial flow to the brain due to inflammation in autoimmune disorders, such as polyarteritis nodosa, namely the absorption of healthy tissue by the immune system itself.
What are the symptoms?
- In most people, symptoms of stroke grow quickly in seconds or minutes. Symptoms depend on the precise brain regions affected. Symptoms of stroke include:
-Sense of weakness and inability to move one side of the body.
- Numbness on one side of the body.
- Tremor, clumsy, or loss of control of fine movements.
- Impaired vision, for example, one eye can not see.
- Talk is not clear.
-Difficulty finding words and understand the speech of others.
-Vomiting, vertigo, and difficulty maintaining balance.
Stroke can cause severe, the patient is unconscious and fell into a coma, even death.
How to diagnose?
- If you suspect someone has a stroke, bring him quickly to the hospital to find the cause and begin treatment.
- Imaging of the brain, such as computerized tomography (CT) scan or MRI can be done to find out whether a stroke caused by bleeding or blockage of blood vessels.
