Stroke is a condition of nerve damage in the brain suddenly caused by interruption of blood flow with acute symptoms and lasts more than 24 hours. Disorders of blood flow include blocked arteries (ischemic stroke) and ruptured blood vessels (hemorrhagic stroke / bleeding).
The most common symptom of stroke is paralysis of one or both sides of the body. To find out someone has had a stroke or is not required anamnesis, physical examination and examination. Related to history taking, try to dig up history, especially risk factors related to stroke symptoms such as high blood pressure, age when having an attack, family history with the same complaints, smoking, obesity, high cholesterol / dyslipidemia, history of heart problems to daily lifestyle. Then do a neurological physical examination and get signs of motor weakness or decreased sensory function. Try to do a neurological examination including awareness, eye movements, body reflexes, speech and balance functions. No less important is a radiological examination with a CT scan to assess the condition of the brain and the cause of stroke (ischemic or bleeding).
So related to your question, to find out whether your visiting patient has a stroke or not, you should do a thorough examination and evaluation starting from the history taking, neurological examination and supporting examination. It is advisable to do a direct examination with a neurologist to get a complete examination and appropriate management. So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
