The Dangers Of Mild Stroke?
Good morning .. Assalamu’allakum .. morning my mother was rushed to the hospital. After the admission examination was done, the doctor was sick, he said, my mother had a mild stroke, because I was outside the country (tki) so I didn’t know the exact situation .. said my sister who was in the hospital. My mom won’t be around 9 to 12 o’clock or tomorrow will be handled by a specialist .. my question. What are the dangers and what are the risks to my mother if the treatment of a new specialist can be done tomorrow … thanks Wassalamu’allaikum .. (I can’t download the app in the country I live in)
Hello Ahmad, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
A mild stroke or what is also called a TIA (transient ischemic attack) is a condition where there is a temporary disruption of blood flow to the brain which causes the brain to experience lack of oxygen (ischemia) without being accompanied by tissue death (infarction). Generally, the symptoms of a TIA will disappear in less than 24 hours.
Although these symptoms can disappear on their own within 24 hours, the risk of recurring TIA and even the risk of stroke is quite high in people who have TIA, especially in the first 48 hours after the attack. In the remaining minority, recurrent TIA attacks or strokes can occur in the weeks to months after the attack.
Management for TIA itself is more focused on preventing the recurrence of TIA or the occurrence of this stroke. In general, no specific medical action is needed in dealing with TIA (no need for surgery or other actions), and TIA sufferers are only given drugs. Medicines that are generally given are anti-platelet drugs, coupled with other drugs to control risk factors such as antihypertensive drugs, antidiabetic drugs, anticoagulant drugs (blood thinners), cholesterol-lowering drugs (statins). If on examination there is evidence of obstruction in the carotid arteries, a carotid endarterectomy or carotid artery stenting may be performed.
Because the therapy provided is generally only drugs, the doctor at the hospital will certainly provide the medicines your mother needs on the recommendation and consultation with a specialist. If there are things you want to ask more clearly about your mother's therapy, you should ask your younger siblings to ask the doctor who treats your mother in the hospital directly.
