First Aid For Stroke Sufferers?
Is it true that first aid people can get a stroke like that?
Hello Hurairoh Ramadan,
Stroke is a condition where brain tissue suddenly loses blood oxygen supply. There are 2 causes, namely ischemic (blocked arteries) and hemorrhagic (ruptured blood vessels). The part of the brain that is supplied by blood vessels that are experiencing problems will be disrupted. Symptoms that are often experienced by people who have a stroke are:
Face suddenly looks asymmetrical (corner of lip on one side appears lower / bowed) Unable to move arms or legs one side (left or right only) patients such as sleep snoring seizures The first aid you can give to stroke sufferers is to take it immediately to the nearest emergency room. Poking the 10 fingers of a patient with a needle CANNOT stop the process of a stroke. There is no single medical journal that can prove the benefits of this action. By pricking a finger, it means you have wasted time searching for a needle, jabbing it at the sufferer, which should be wisely used to bring the patient to the nearest hospital.
There are no special signs that appear when a stroke will occur in a person. When signs like severe headaches, vomiting, which often appear before a bleeding stroke, usually the stroke has already occurred in the brain. So the most is how to prevent stroke. Check your blood pressure regularly, if hypertension-consume antihypertensive drugs regularly and do not carelessly stop. Check cholesterol and blood sugar, treat if the test results are high. If you are> 45 years old or have complaints of left chest pain, especially heavy when doing activities there is no harm in conducting an electrocardiographic examination, to rule out the possibility of heart abnormalities which is one of the risks of stroke. Apply a healthy lifestyle by consuming nutritious food, avoid smoking and alcoholic drinks, regular exercise.
Such is my explanation, hopefully it helps.
