There Is 500 Cc Of Fluid In The Right Brain, Including What Type Of Stroke?
My doctor wants to ask, if there is a diagnosis of fluid in the right side of the brain at 50cc, roughly what is included in a stroke? Before experiencing a stroke, he fell when he woke up, then passed out and a month later had an anhalf and was rushed to the hospital and diagnosed it. Please help, thank you
Good evening, thanks for the question
In this question the fluid in the brain that is measured through imaging tests is probably a bleeding fluid as a result of rupture of blood vessels in the brain. Stroke based on its type is divided into 2 types, namely stroke due to blockage of cerebral blood vessels (ischemic stroke) and due to rupture of cerebral blood vessels (hemorrhagic stroke). Both cause symptoms that arise will be different, and the handling will be very different.
In brief, a bleeding stroke is more severe than a blockage stroke. The more amount of bleeding that is seen the worse the disease outcome will be. Strokes with symptoms that arise suddenly and cause the sufferer to become unconscious with worsening conditions that are classified as fast are most likely a type of bleeding stroke. Ruptured blood vessels cause accumulation of blood in the closed skull bone cavity, resulting in an increase in pressure inside the head resulting in pressure to the brain, resulting in severe symptoms.
Symptoms of a bleeding stroke include:
1. Severe headaches
2. Nausea and vomiting
3. Decreased awareness
5. Weak, paralysis on one side of the body
6. Speech disorders
7. Impaired vision
8. And so on
Handling of bleeding strokes aims to control bleeding and prevent complications through strict observation, drug therapy, to surgery. After treatment, the patient cannot fully recover, especially if the brain damage is extensive. Additional therapy including physical therapy, speech, etc. is needed to improve the social function of sufferers after a stroke.
That's all, hope you can help.
