Brain Hemorrhage Occurs Due To Rupture Of Blood Vessels In The Brain?
But there is no bleeding in the digestive tract. He doesn’t vomit blood or blood chapter. The last point of the meal is at 3 o’clock and around 8 o’clock is dizzy and late, at 12 o’clock, I don’t wake up, instead my mouth foams and loses consciousness. The diagnosis is still bleeding from the brain so that it is treated in the stroke room. But don’t say if the stomach has been cleaned. Is there any influence from the last meal?
Hello, good afternoon Intan ...
The procedure you mean by gastric cleansing is probably a gastric lavage procedure. This procedure is done by inserting a tube through the mouth or nostrils into the stomach, then putting a little liquid through the tube, and allowing fluid from the stomach and then out through the same tube (like the process of rinsing). Gastric lavage procedures are usually indicated in patients who experience upper gastrointestinal bleeding, especially patients suspected of having gastrointestinal bleeding but do not show symptoms of vomiting of blood, so this procedure can also be used as an examination to support the diagnosis. In addition to upper gastrointestinal bleeding conditions, this procedure is also performed for other conditions, such as:
remove toxic substances that are in the stomach, for example in cases of food poisoning or attempted suicide using toxic substances, or in a drug overdose condition.
phlegm for examination purposes, for example in children who can not expel phlegm, but for various reasons sputum is needed for examination
one effort to deal with patients who experience hyperthermia (very high body temperature)
Meanwhile, gastric lavage is not a routine examination for cases of stroke due to brain hemorrhage, and brain hemorrhage is also not caused by food poisoning. Brain hemorrhage occurs due to rupture of blood vessels in the brain, things that can cause it include:
high blood pressure
smoking, consuming alcohol, using drugs such as heroin and cocaine
severe head injury
cerebral vascular abnormalities
slippery wall of the artery
liver disease, where he experiences a disruption in the production of blood clotting factors
blood clotting negligence, etc.
To ascertain the reason for your gastric lavage, we recommend that you ask the doctor directly treating your relatives, because after all the doctor is examining your relatives directly, so that he is more aware of your relatives' conditions and considerations- consideration of actions and handling taken.
So, hopefully it can be understood.
