Is it a stroke?
Stroke disease is a disorder of brain function caused by blood flow to the brain is impaired (reduced). As a result, nutrients and oxygen to the brain dbutuhkan not met properly. Cause there are two kinds of strokes, namely the existence of blockages in blood vessels (thrombus), and the presence of a ruptured blood vessel.
Generally a stroke suffered by the parents, because the aging process causes hardening and narrowing of blood vessels (arteriosclerosis) and the presence of fats that clog arteries (atherosclerosis). But some recent cases show an increase in cases of stroke that occurs in adolescence and childbearing age (15-40 years). In this group, the leading cause of stroke is a stress, drug abuse, alcohol, heredity, and lifestyle is not healthy.
Causes of stroke
In the case of stroke adolescence, genetic factors (hereditary) is the major cause of stroke. Frequently encountered cases of stroke caused by blood vessels are fragile and easily broken, or blood system disorders such as hemophilia and thalassemia disease is passed down from parents of patients. Meanwhile, if a family member with diabetes (diabetes), hypertension (high blood pressure), and heart disease, stroke likely to be greater in other family members.
The cause of stroke is a food with higher levels of bad cholesterol (Low Density Lipoprotein) is very high. Koleserol evil there are many on junk food or fast food. In addition, other causes of stroke is a lazy habit of exercising and moving, lots of drinking alcohol, smoking, use of narcotic and addictive substances, much less rest time, and prolonged stress. Rupture of blood vessels are also often caused by high blood pressure (hypertension).
Symptoms of a stroke
The early symptoms of stroke are generally dizzy, head spinning (such as vertigo disease), then followed with a speech impairment and mouth muscles move. Other symptoms are tergangguanya sensitive sensor (can not feel anything, such as pinched or pricked needles) and the body feels paralyzed side, and the absence of reflex movements. Often also occur suddenly blind or blurred vision (because the supply of blood and oxygen to the eye is greatly reduced), disruption of taste in the mouth of the system and the muscles of the mouth (so often encountered people with a wry face), paralysis of the muscles of the body, and disruption system memory and emotion. Common people can not stop crying because of paralysis of the brain controls his emotions on the system. It makes people act like a stroke patient psychiatric illness, but it’s not. Things like this need to be understood by the family of the patient.
The healing process
There are 2 main healing process that must be lived with. First is healing with medicines in hospitals. Strict control should be done to keep the bad cholesterol can be lowered and did not grow up. In addition, patients are also prohibited from eating foods that can trigger a stroke such as junk food and salt (can trigger hypertension).
The healing process is fisiotherapy second, that exercise the muscles to restore muscle function and communication function to approach its former condition. Fisiotherapi Fisiotherapi conducted with instructors, and patients must adhere to the exercise performed. If Fisiotherapi is not lived in earnest, then the permanent paralysis can occur in the body which had suffered paralysis.
Healing in patients with stroke varies greatly. There can be cleared completely (100%), some are only 50% only. Healing is dependent on whether or not severe stroke, the condition of the patient’s body, the compliance in patients undergoing the process of healing, perseverance and spirit of the patient to recover, as well as support and understanding from all family members of patients. Often found that stroke survivors can recover, but suffered severe depression because their families do not want to understand and feel deeply troubled by illness (such as attitudes do not accept the person’s condition, harsh treatment because the patient had to clean dirt, handing the patient to the nurse who also treats patients with coarse, and so on). This should be avoided if a family member who suffered a stroke.
